    DIfference between manpages-dev and libstdc++ manpage

    Hi,

    I was wondering what is the difference between manpages-dev and libstdc++ manpage as to C and C++ programming? As far as I know, libstdc++ manpage is for GNU C++ standard library and the first one for ...? Do they cover some content in common?

    I also have the impression that the info on which file to include is not always clearly specified or even unavailable. For example, by man std::vector, I am not able to find such info as to add "#include<vector>" in my code if I would like to use std::vector. Or am I missing something?

    Is there a manpage used in terminal to show the basic syntax for C and C++ like for class, virtual function, while, for and etc...?

    Or what would you recommend for info on C and C++ and their standard library, especially when not able to use internet?

    Thanks!

    PDF copies of the C and C++ standards :P

    Actually, I find Josuttis' book The C++ Standard Library: A Tutorial and Reference to be pretty handy, except for the fact that it is bulky.
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar

    Look up a C++ Reference and learn How To Ask Questions The Smart Way
