Enumerations in Adama are simply ways of associating integers to names.

enum Suit { Hearts:1, Spades:2, Clubs:3, Diamonds:4 }

We can refer to a single value via :: by

Suit x = Suit::Hearts;

Enumeration collections

We can build an array of all the values within an enumeration using the * symbol. For example, we can build an array of all the suit types via:

Suit[] all = Suit::*;

which is a handy. We can also build an array of all enumeration values which share a prefix. For instance, given the enum

enum Role { CoreLeft, CoreRight, Normal };

then we can refer to the collection of all values that start with Core via

Role[] core = Role::Core*;

This is a handy way to build a strict taxonomy within an enumeration.
