According to Sutter ( it is
not only allowed but always to be preferred and his moral/solution #2
has the nice property that link error will not occur, even without the
confusing static keyword for globals - if I am not totally mistaken.

In the earlier post, I was concluding from the fact that because for
'static int a = 5;' in a header file there is a symbol created in each
compilation unit in which this header file is included, this would
also hold for global static functions. I seem to have been wrong.

Have a good evening...
