The for-loop will not compile (using g++) unless you define an operator++ for the enum

It should be: SpectrumColor operator++(SpectrumColor &s, int dummy) { return s = (s >= Violet) ? Red : SpectrumColor(s + 1); }

Change the second bullet item to the following: An abstract base class prescribes an interface to be implemented by a derived class. A derived class may provide a definition for a member function of the base class, declare the member function as pure virtual itself, or not declare it at all. In the latter two cases, the derived class becomes abstract as well.
