Hi, Saurabh,

Sorry for sending that borked message. Outlook 2010 is driving me nuts!

This is C syntax which obviously doesn't work in (Iron)Python. Python is
a dynamically typed language, so type casts do not exist "by design".

But the enum class has a toobject method:

So (with the appropriate import statements), the following should do:

Np = Enum.ToObject(NoisePath, 255)
