iOS Swift Enums and Structs Enums What is an Enum?

When every you are using a enum can you do the .value

Even when you reassigning the var today to Day.Sunday could you have just done this?

today = .Sunday

Because you have already declared that it is the enum Day?

No this will not work .Value syntax being used because here the
func weekdayOrWeekend ( dayOfWeek: Day ) ->String{} is stated in
func (parameter :Type){} allowing inner switch case can use .Value of enum as it is expecting Day.Value .... So ```enum Day{ case Value, OtherValue } func ( param : Day)-> String{
switch param{ case .Value: return "string yes" default: return "string no" }

Look at your **return values** they must be **->String** so variable will not be suitable
