    The man pages are great for looking up C functions, in my opinion. If you're on Windows, you can Google "unix man function_name", and you'll probably find one. (Although some always seem to come up blank.)

    There are, of course, other functions from other libraries, OS specific functions (Windows has about a billion...), etc. Again though, Google Is Your Friend.

    Beware just about any reference to "standard" functions[1]. They may not be very clear about whether the functions are really specified by the ISO C standard. I like to use this one.

    [1] Except the standard itself, of course.

    If you are on the masochist side, you could use the documentation from the ISO C working group. Here is the latest version (at the time of writing this). Interesting stuff is at chapter 7.

    You can't have more standard than this document. But beware; your compiler might not "support" all the function described in the document. Anyway, i'm quite sure no one use this on a regular basic (me included). Can be useful, tough.

    I have a copy of the standard everywhere I have a computer, and I refer to it multiple times a day.
