Hello!

Assume I have a code like this:

static void main() {

}

int test() {

}

I want to define a variable in this code which can be accessible from main and int.

Also if I define a variable for example X in main and another X in test, how can I call test's X from main?

Thanks

Hi,

define the variable as global before main
e.g.

int x;
static void main() {

}

int test() {

}

If you define the variable X in test() it will be local variable for test() and it is impossible to call it from main. It's allocated on the stack and exists only during the function call.

This is possible with static class members.
Or, namespace...

Example:

namespace test {
      int X;
};

static void main() {

      test::X = 0;
}
