You can find that in the following link:
http://www.dinkum.com/htm_cpl/

That's one of the previously posted link.

You can find VC++ functions in the microsoft.com web site.

You know c_str() is part of string, so you look at the parrent class.
Click on <string>
Then look at the list of functions, and click on c_str

If you're not sure where the class or function is listed within the page, use the find function in your Web browser.

I am afraid I may meet some functions in the future.  And I may have no clue about which library it is in.

If it's STL for the most part, you wouldn't know about the function unless you new about the library.
Example, is why would you be looking for c_str() unless you new you needed it for string.

The acception are the following:
<algorithm>
<functional>
<complex>
<exception>
<limits>

These libraries hold mostly functions.  But there a little advance, and by the time you need them, you'll most likely know where there at.

And enter the function you're looking for in the SEARCH field.
