static variables within object methods

If I have some class, A, and within A, I have some function Blah, and the following code
A::Blah()
{
  static int temp;
}
now the variable temp is static for the function, but also shares the same value for all instances of A. Is there a way to make it static for the function, but have a different value for each instance? Thanks. -Nick

Hmm. Not that I can think of right now...

At first I thought maybe just make it static to the class, but that wouldn't help either.

Your best bet is to just make it a non-static member of the class, and try to only initialize it once.

Why not just have:



class A
{
private:
int temp;

public:
void Blah()
{
temp++; // or whatever
}
}




I really don't understand your purpose, you want a static-nonstatic variable?

Actually, you're right... There is no purpose for that. I still need it to talk between two instances.

Oh well, thanks anyways.
