    i need a site/book that tells all the functions

    im looking for a site or a book or something that tells exactly what functions are included in header files (i.ee cout is in iostream and then goes into somewhat of a detail of what the function does). is there any site or book or anything like that out there?
    thanks

    Me Too!

    Yeah, this is the WORST programming language (that I've studied) for finding a book with all the built-in and library functions. I have a handful of incomplete books at home. You'd think that because C++ is standardized and popular it would be easy. I have "The C++ Programming Language" by Stroustrup (incomplete), but I don't have his other (older) book.

    The help file that comes with MSVC++ is complete, but that doesn't help if you don't know what the function is!

    Last time i looked it was in english?

    It's hard to keep track of all the functions in C++ because the're
    so many compilers,platforms and operating systems wich all
    use their own functions and methods. That's one of the bad
    points of having a cross-platform language.

    There is an ANSI STANDARD, and C++ is SUPPOSED to be portable!!!

    I know this portability stuff is a myth in the real word, but it would be nice to have a complete (printed) reference of the ANSI stuff.

    Most compilers try to be ANSI compliant, that is they will compile ANSI code. Then, they ADD all the extra stuff (like Windows).

    Thank's for the link, Govtcheez. That looks really complete!!!

    Use the Borland Turbo C++ 3.0 compiler's help. it is extensive and exhaustive.
