    Anything like the Java API for C++?

    I do a little Java programming and whenever I need to do something I simply load up the Java API to see what objects are available and what methods those objects give me. Is there anaything like this for C++? For instance, if I have a string exactly what functions can I perform on a string, etc.?

    Thanks in advance.

    It's called the C++ Standard Library, one good reference is here: http://www.cplusplus.com/ref/

    If you're using one of the Microsoft IDE's, chances are it'll come with a version of the MSDN library - very useful for just that sort of thing.
    Just Google It. √
