    The short answer is "you can't", not in standard C.

    Given
    Code:
    enum colours { red, green, blue };
    there is no quick and easy way of getting the system to print say "red".

    One way is to define a lookup table, such as
    Code:
    struct {
      enum colours;
      char *word;
    } table[] = {
      { red, "red" },
      { green, "green" },
      { blue, "blue" }
    };
