Hi Bernard,
I haven't received any mail from you.
Coincidentally I also noticed some problems in Enum and fixed them.
There is one more problem in Enum still exists, which throws exception
on setting any enum member to enum object. Just thought of sharing this
with you as you told you are working in Enum grammar.
I am really sorry if my fix had caused you any inconvenience to you.
As Jambu suggested, plz post any message in vb list which will help
everyone to be in sync.

I'm curious if the email below got through. Can you confirm?
I also notice you put in a similar change for getting typed
enum members - but the second half of my change to
implicitly convert to integer types when this is value
preserving is also needed for vbc compatability.

Anyway at the moment I'm concerned something is filtering
my email...

Subject: mbas patches

You may have noticed I have checked in a couple of tweaks to the MB
parser. I have made GetType work for most cases and I made Is behave
like =. This is basically so tests and other programs can use them
if their implementation needs refining. I hope this is OK.

I also attach a bigger patch to make enums behave better and more like
vbc together with a test program that fails before and works after. I
don't claim it is 100% correct - in particular checking for Public
- but enums behave better than before. Other tests behave the same. Is
this OK to commit?
