I'm trying to get to grips with C++ (with the Stroustrup book) and so far, so good. I understand the concept of linking to libraries for certain functions, but where can I find which library holds a particular function?

Pretty basic, I know, but if you wanna learn to cook, you gotta know what the ingredients do Wink

Hi DM...

Not sure if this is what you want but........

Just Google the #include(s) in your program and there is
plenty of info...

For example...

#include <time.h>

Search for "time library c++" without the quotes...

If you want the functions in #include <stdio.h> then
search for "stdio library c++" without the quotes...

K&Rs C Programming Language is a very thorough look
at C and its derivatives and a lot of the standard libraries
although a little out of date in my copy...

Hope this helps...
