I have a simple enquiry. I am going through some C codes and I need to find out what is the use of declaring variables as "static".

Although, I have the definition of the static storage class but I cant appreciate why we need to explicitly declare variables as "static" and what would happen if we don't.

Would appreciate any one who can give examples of a application to illustrate why it is neccessary to declare a variable as "static"

Thank you.
