    help with static linkage error of member function

    Here is the code:

    static const char* Token:rintableForm(int tokenType)

    if(tokenType == 1) return "ASSIGN";
    else if(tokenType == 2) return "PLUS";
    else if(tokenType == 3) return "TIMES";
    else if(tokenType == 4) return "MINUS";
    else if(tokenType == 5) return "DIVIDE";
    else if(tokenType == 6) return "EQ";
    else if(tokenType == 7) return "GT";
    else if(tokenType == 8) return "LT";
    else if(tokenType == 9) return "NEQ";
    else if(tokenType == 10) return "AND";

    Here is the error:

    tokenizer.cpp:20: cannot declare member function `static const char*
    Token:rintableForm(int)' to have static linkage
    Can anyone help me with this please. I am not sure how to fix this or what to do.

    Remove static off of your defintion, you only need it in the declaration... eg,

    Code:
    class A
    {
     public:
        A() {m_i = 0 };
        static const int myfunc();
    
     private:
        int m_i;
    }
    
    const int A::myfunc()
    {
        return 0;
    }
