local allocation of array and external reference to it

I'm not too experienced at C yet and have a question on (possibly) the use of pointers and arrays. I wish to allocate a temporary area of memory in a routine to hold 256 bytes of data. I then wish to access this block of memory in another routine called from this routine. I cant quite get my head around what is required to do this. Could someone help me out here, please?

I'm using an 8 bit uP (9S08RE16) and want to use the RAM space efficiently so want to have this 256 bytes available for use later in the program.
