Mu.  (You're asking the wrong question.)

Why do you need to make a variable global?  Global variables are bad
style in almost every instance; an object to manage the variable gives
you readability and protection from unexpected side-effects.

If you explain what it is you want to achieve with a global variable,
it's likely a better solution can be proposed.
