Retaining values in a function: C Essential Training: 1 The Basics

Variables are local, or private, to their functions. To prevent a variable's contents from being discarded, declare the variable as static. Static variables retain their values after a function quits. If you plan on a function retaining a variable's value, ensure that it's declared and initialized as the same time.
