    C++ Resources?

    I am looking for two things. One is a site that lists all or many of the commands in C++ like a glossary and the syntax for them. The other thing is a similar site that lists header files and what each one is used for.

    I am very surprised how hard it is to find that type of thing. It would seem that everyone just knew all those things by heart and there needn't be any reference sites.

    If you know of any I would appreciate the help. THanks!!

    Demonographic rhinology is not the only possible outcome, but why take the chance

    Yeah - those are the kind of references I like to use - just learn the syntax and then memorize a list (HTML is perfect for that learning strategy) - but they are pretty hard to find.

    www.cplusplus.com is a nice one that's quite commonly quoted on this board.

    The web is only one reference medium. I've found that books are easier to study, so my web searches tend to be for source code rather than language reference.

    I agree that books are easier to study but they are expensive and I have yet to find one that actually has reference lists (not that I've looked extensively, mind you)

    References:

    C++ is a complex language, and I'm really impressed that Sean has memorized all of the functions and which headers they are in!

    Another complete reference is Dinkumware.com.

    I have searched, and as far as I know, there is no complete C++ reference book, other than the official language standard..

    I have the ANSI/ISO C++ Language Standard which you can download in PDF format for about $20 (hard copy about $200). In places, it refers-back to the C standard, so you need that too (another $20). Of course, it's structured as a specification, not as a handy reference. And, the PDF format makes it even more difficult to find what you're looking for. (I'm thinking about getting my PDF version printed-out and bound... It's a bit too long to print-out on my ink jet, and stick in a binder.)

    The C Programming Language, by Kernighan & Ritchie is a good reference to the C-part of the language.

    The C++ Standard Library, by Nicolai M. Josuttis is a good reference to the C++ Standard Template Library.
