You seem to be using C++ like you maybe did with C.
I'd like to advise against that.
In a OO language, globals are bad.

If you really need an object that is accessible by more than one
module, and that can't be passed as a function parameter,
then try to build a class/routine encapsulating it, and that has
static variables.

If you want to know how OO programmers do it, search the net or
deja.com for 'singleton'.  But please don't use C++ as you would
do it with C --- heck you can even do C without globals, and it's
much cleaner.
