    Help understanding Headers and Other beginner stuff

    Ok ..well since Im still learning the syntax and what-not of the C++ programming language I have a few questions..

    As far as i've read in tutorials and other resources the...

    #include <iostream>

    ...Is a header. Is this the correct name for this? If now please point me to the right now.

    Also is there a list of different headers and what they do somewhere like on a website?

    And for stuff like...

    using namespace std;

    What are these called? Also is there a list of other things like this that let me use other commands..

    Like ive read of different ones that will let me use somthing to clear the console screen..

    Right now im also trying to learn about Clearning the console screen and setting font color in console..

    These are all my questions as of now.. Sorry if its alot..
