    If you just need a reference then MSDN is pretty hard to beat. The C library is ........ easy to use. For C++ you may need a reference 'such as' "The C++ Standard Library" by Nicolia Josuttis, or SGI has a good C++ reference if you've got a vague idea of what you're doing.

    It may not be free, but if you get hold of the cheapest legitimate version of MSVC++ you can then it'll contain CD/DVD's of MSDN. Other than that you're going to have to scrounge around the warez sites (by the time you get anything chances are it's out of date). If you're on a limited budget I'm sure there are countless middle of the road C/C++ references at your local book store.

    So what you're saying is that people should donate their work to your lazy ass. I like it, I've never thought of that, it might just work.

    Search around the gnu.org manuals and something might turn up. Then take your computer, put it in the original packaging, and take it back to wherever you bought it from and ask for a refund because it is obvious that you are too retarded to get any benefit from one.
    PS. Now that I think about it you can skip the first step.
    I go to encounter for the millionth time the reality of experience and to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race.

    Windows XP consists of 32 bit extensions and a graphical shell for a 16 bit patch to an 8 bit operating system originally coded for a 4 bit microprocessor, written by a 2 bit company, that can't stand 1 bit of competition.
