class A { private: static const int a[] = {100,200}; };

I know that MS VC++6 has problems in this syntax:
---------------------------------
class A {
private:
static const int a = 5;
}
---------------------------------
The hack is to use "enum" instead, but in my case below I don't know what to do:
---------------------------------
class A {
private:
static const int a[] = { 5, 6, 1, 4, ............... ........ }; // up to 400 values
}
---------------------------------
So, What to do?

class A {

int const A::a[ ] = { 5, 6, 1, 4 };

This is not an MSVC-specific problem: C++ only allows in-class
initializers on static members of constant intergral or enumeration
type (C++2003 9.2/4).

what to do:

Another point: using an enum is not necessarily a hack. A static
constant member is an lvalue whose address can be taken and which
therefore incurs some (small) runtime cost. Sometimes it is desirable
to avoid this cost, esp. in template metaprogramming .

"Defining static const variables inside the class is not universally supported yet, so for now I guess you'll have to move the definition out of the body of the class.
