Constant folding does not work for enum constants

Issue #191 resolved

created an issue

ExtendJ 8.0.1-157-ge916427 Java SE 8

Constant expressions that use enum constants cause ExtendJ to crash when ExtendJ tries to fold the constant expression.

The following test case causes ExtendJ to crash:

import static runtime.Test.*;

public class Test {
  public static enum CatType {
    HOUSE, STRAY,
    LASAGNA, TOM,
    HAT, CHESHIRE
  }

  public static final String cat1 = "Cat in the " + CatType.HAT;
}

An UnsupportedOperationException is thrown:

    [junit] Compilation failed when expected to pass:
    [junit] Fatal exception:
    [junit] java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException: ConstantExpression operation constant not supported for type org.extendj.ast.EnumInstanceE
