static variable memory storage


I have a doubt of storing static variables in memory.I think
static,global variables are stored in the same location.Static ,Gloabal
variables are stored in HEAP .Can anybody explain me the storage area
of all type variable in memory

Does the language have any idea about heap or stack (As in storage
areas) ? Isn't it implementation dependant ? If yes, then I guess we
should not be worried about where those variables are stored.

C++ knows three types of memory storage types: static, dynamic and
static memory is used for variables in namespace scope and static local
variables. dynamic memory is used by operator new and by *alloc. automatic
memory is used for non-static local variables.

The following program compiles fine but elicits this message from the linker: "undefined reference to VarArray::funct" and thus fails. It seems to behave as if the static data-member: VarArray::funct were an extern, but it is declared in the same file (q.v.). What is the remedy for this? =================

Hello, For several reasons I want to replace the built-in memory management with some custom built. The mem management itlsef is not subject to my question - it's ok to the point that I have nice and working allocation deallocation routines. However, I don't want to loose the nice extras of new operator, like - constructor calling, typecasting the result, keeping the array size, etc. For another bunch of reasons, outside this scope I...

This should be easy, but I can't immediately see what the answer is... I have some code which needs to be re-entrant. It also needs to create a unique identifier. The obvious way to create a unique ID is to maintain a static counter, and to increment it each time it's needed. Any ideas on how to do this in a re-entrant way? I don't call this code (it's Yacc output), so I can't suppy anything on the stack.

I have a function which is called from a loop many times. In that function, I use three variables as counters and for other purposes. I can either use DIM for declaring the variables or Static. Would the performance be better using Static versus Dynamic. I would think it would be quicker with STATIC declarations since the variables would only have to be created once. Can anyone confirm this. Thanks. -- Dennis in Houston

When I define a static variable, where is the memory allocated for the static variable? Thanks. Jack

This is an interview question and I gave out my answer here, could you please check for me? Q. What are the memory allocation for static variable in a function, an automatic variable and global variable? My answer: static variable in function and global variable are allocated in head, and automatic variable is allocated in stack. Right?

where does a static variable inside a function get stored?? where does it go in memory?? like Global goes in RAM, Local variable goes on Stack... but how does static variable takes place in memory??
