	How can one keep a full list of everything that is defined in all the
possible .h files when coding in C?  I'm not trying to be obtuse, I
really want to know.  Over the years I have coded in a number of
different languages (Jack of all trades, master of none) and, in my old
age, have decided that languages that need separate header files are
just to much work for me to deal with.  Same with languages that have a
gazillion-and-one unintelligible variables.

	Is there really some way I could learn to program in C (or even C++)
that would make sense to me?  If so I'd be more than happy to contribute
code to all kinds of places.
