Enums with Raw Values


enum HTTP: String { case post case get case put case delete }


prints delete.

This I understand. Now for fun I changed String to Int.

The result panel gives me the value 3.

I dont understand why?


"delete" is the fourth case in your Enum.

Since Swift begins counting at 0, the fourth case would be represented by the integer 3.
