specifically here is alink to C++ signatures where i learned about them when looking for a common idea to the java interface keyword.

http://www.tac.dk/cgi-bin/info2www?(gcc.info)C%2B%2B%20Signatures

or you can get to it from
http://www.tac.dk/cgi-bin/info2www?(gcc.info)Index
and go down to C++ Signatures.

If you know that they are part of the standard and can show me somewhere that says it, i would really appreciate it! thanks!

No, they are not. But, the functionality actually is the same as a pure virtual base class (aka 'interface'). E.g.

     signature S
     {
       int foo ();
       int bar (int);
     };


is identical to

     struct S
     {
       virtual int foo () = 0;
       virtual int bar (int) = 0;
     };
