    Yes.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    It depends on what you want to do. There are 24 C headers and 51 C++ headers. The number for C++ jumps up if you count the 18 deprecated .h C headers. Most programmers only use a small subset of them all.
    My best code is written with the delete key.
