Headers

In C++ 1, my examples had both a system defined header (<iostream>) and a user defined header (hello.h). In this blog we are going to cover headers in more detail. Most of the information in this blog is from a book called C++ in a nutshell, any other sources will be listed following the information.

Standard Library Headers

There are 51 headers in the standard library which are listed below.

There are more headers in the standard library if you are using C++ 11, which are listed below. There are even more included in newer versions of C++, but I use C++ 14 so they dont apply to me. [source]
