declare a variable with flexible array members (c99)

Hello everyone,

in c99 I can make a struct with a flexible array member at the end. Is it possible to create such a variable at compile time?


struct monitoredArray
   unsigned int const arrSize;
   unsigned int nUsed;
   uint8_t array[];

static struct monitoredArray myArray = {10, 0, [10] /* this won't work... */};

I'd like to use this for a generic kind of initialization (in respect to the array size) so I can use this in different modules without big modification or use of malloc and an init-function. I just want to know how to write that [10] in the example above.
