You could use an accessor function:
typedef std::vector< std::string > PatternsMsgs;
const PatternMsgs& patternMsgs()
static PatternMsgs messages;
static bool initialised = false;
if ( !initialised )
// fill the vector
initialised = true;
that is if the messages are constant. Make it return a non-const
