Unfortunately, programming documentation on Linux is a bit
fragmented. You can find quick documentation for the standard C stuff
in manpages-dev, but that doesn't cover C++. libstdc++6-4.2-doc has
some documentation for C++ stuff, but for the STL stl-manual. Other
library documentation tends to be either in -dev packages or in -doc
packages with a similar name: for instance, ncurses documentation is in
libncurses5-dev, but cwidget documentation is in libcwidget-doc.
