Help Please -> with forward declarations...


Hi,

Can someone tell me if it is legal to forward declare an enumeration. I
created a small test case which gets the following error (using 3.0.3 on
Solaris 2.7):

gcc -x c++ -c enum_test.h
enum_test.h:2: use of enum `nBaseDims' without previous declaration

<<snip enum_test.h>>

enum colors;

void func1(colors var1);


Is this a bug in gcc? I can forward declare a class, struct, or union but
not an enum. Any help would be great.

Thanks,

Tom
