    C++ Header Files

    Sorry for asking another question, but is there anyplace on this site (or any other site) that has a listing of all of the valid C++ header files and what they allow you to do (ie - what functions they allow you to call)?

    This is a pretty nice reference.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    "All valid C++ header files" is a bit of a blurry definition. There are the headers defined by the ISO C++ standard, the above links ought to give you a good idea of what they are.
    But it is valid to include whatever header file happens to be in the include search directory of your compiler, provided it compiles. And there's no list what every header on earth does, of course.
    All the buzzt!

    By valid, I meant the ISO C++ standard. I just couldn't remember what it was called at the time.
