    Question Header files (Which, when, how,...)

    Hi!

    Finally I got around C++. I've learned some basics on syntax on so forth, but now I'm getting confused (again!) about header files.
    I'd like to know where can I get info regarding those files like:
    What file to use and when, functions in those files, maybe a list of all files that can be used in C++, etc.

    And yes, is there a list of buildIn functions for C++ (I don't have MDSN!), because as far as I've noticed, they pretty differ from those in VB!

    Thanx in advance!
    Regards!

    Hi!

    Thanx again. Did some searching over the web but found nothing usefull (quite a fiew sites regarding header files, all of them are just explaining what those files are supposed to be and what would they suppose to do, but none of them had a listing of them).
    Same thing poped up, when I searched for functions.

    Can you provide some good URL (books are out of my budget right now!)

    Regards!

    like my colleague just wrote, c++ is a huge language, i myself have a book on C++ standard template libray that's over 1000 pages long.... and i don't think u would any detail explanation on the internet b/c it's not legal do give you exactly the code of those file.... on the other hand.... i am sure there's a lot of general usage explanations on the web you just gotta look for them..... for now ... if you have any specific questions regarding a header file or maybe the whole idea or perhaps the way they work...
    then feel free to ask....

    Thanx, man!

    Yes, in this moment I'd like to know witch header file to include when I'd like to print my output to the printer and what would the code look like.

    Thanx again!
