[aspectc-user] enum type matching

Hi Arnd-Hendrik,

I'm sorry, but slice introductions into enums are not supported. When we
switched from the AspectJ-like introductions to our slice concept one of
the main objectives was the ability to introduce new elements not only
into classes, but, as I said before, it's not implemented for enums, yet.

BTW, the match mechanism, which is described in the reference manual, is
indeed able to match enums. For example, you could match a function that
returns an enumerator of a specific enum type as its result value. The
problem is that enum slices don't exist, yet.

Best regards,
