977. When is an enumeration type complete?

Section: 9.7.1  [dcl.enum]     Status: CD3     Submitter: Daniel Krügler     Date: 3 October, 2009

[Moved to DR at the April, 2013 meeting.]

There is disagreement among implementations as to when an enumeration type is complete. For example,

    enum E { e = E() };

is rejected by some and accepted by another. The Standard does not appear to resolve this question definitively.

See also issue 1482.

Proposed resolution (December, 2012):

This issue is resolved by the resolution of issue 1482.
