    How do I identify functions in header files like conio.h and understand what they do? Can I even do this?

    Pretty much every compiler I have ever used has come with some sort of documentation. Maybe you should consult yours.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :- http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi

    The most complete reference that I have found for the standard header files is dinkumware.

    This reference lists all the header files and their functions, but not a lot of detailed explanations or examples. And, although conio.h is quite common, it is not part of the standard, so you'll have to check your compiler's documentation for the non-standard shtuff.

    Here are a couple others I like as well:
    Rogue Wave Reference
    SGI STL Reference
