download all C++ libraries?

Hey guys I don't know if you remember me from a few months ago but if you do you might remember that I'm a real rookie at C++. Regardless of that I was wondering if you guys could help me find a site that has all C++ libraries downloadable and explains what their function is, what the name of their header file is, and how to use them in an IDE. I've tried googling but all I've found is This which I think I already have because Visual C++ is the IDE I use. this who's download links are dead (I tried to get the big number library from it but ran into a site that gave me the 404 error) I also ran into this which I don't even know what it is. Is it some kind of extremely advanced library?


P.S. Can you also tell me how to implement libraries into an IDE? (So that the IDE sees the header file when I type its name into the IDE)
Most standard header files are usually included within the download of your IDE. If you look in the compiler directory you should be able to locate a folder named include or source or lib. There are many libraries. You will need to be more specific as to what it is that you need.

As far as adding the libraries, if its just a header and source, then usually its just
#include <name> 

where "name" is the name of the library header file you will want to use.

try this link for OpenGL:

Yeah now that I think about it I guess I would need to be more specific given the fact that C++ is used for almost everything nowadays with the exception of the web and web-based stuff.

Yes I know I was originally asking for what the name was for every library.

Thanks for the Open GL link I'll take a look at it and reply again later.
