I think they mean that enum variants can contain fields, i.e. individual variants are themselves structs or tuple structs. AFAIK the closest thing to this in a C-like lang would be a tagged union type.


oh yes thats what i mean. Coded in rust, loved this feature, went back to python a bit and became sad that I couldnt do the same. Feels stupid that a variable can be different types depending on the situation, and having a dataclass where just one field is relevant seems too dumb
