You'd initialize those const variables in the constructor initializer list because const in class has different meaning versus in local or file scope.

class blah
{

const char blahwords;
public:
blah(char c='C');
}

blah::blah(char c):blahwords(c)
{
//other initializations.
}

Sincerely hope above helpful...
