Your code actually asks a different question than your text: your code is asking whether or not you can define an enum within a *method*.

Agreed. It has been over 2 hours since the original post. Trying it yourself would have taken under a minute.

And again, please note the difference between what you're asking in text and what your code is trying to do.

(I also think either your keyboard or keyboard driver is broken as you punctuation keys seem to repeat.)
