Elaborated Type Specifier

An elaborated type specifier is a type name preceded by one of the keywords: enum, struct, union, and class. You can use an elaborated type specifier to instantiate an object of a previously declared type. For example:
enum Status {good, bad};
union U { int n; float f};

    //the following declarations use elaborated type specifiers
struct Date date; 
enum Status stat;
union U u;
    //non elaborated form
Date date2;
Status stat2;
U u2;
Additionally, you can use an elaborated type specifier to refer to a previously declared type that has been hidden by a non-type declaration.
