There is no straight up list of commands. The API is too large to document in one page, so instead of making a table of contents, you will have to search for what you think you are looking for to find what you want.

wouldn't it be nice if all coding languages had a helpfile like autoit. i think the helpfile is what makes it so nice.

The next best thing, MSDN. It is probably the most useful "help file" on the web.

You can't exactly have a help file for C++ because it has no native "commands" - other than what the compiler implements. You will need to look up the help file for the API you want to use. For example, the link above is the "help file" for the Windows API.

All of the native C++ includes are based on some form of a connection to the runtime, which I can only assume is built in assembly.

Edit: just ignore this, it ended up being wrong.

What runtime? Do you mean MSVCRT? It's written in C and the source is available. Do you mean STL? It's written in C++ using mostly templates. Do you mean the C Standard Library? It's written in... C.

I meant the MSVCRT. I did say I assume, not I know though. That's just something else for me to learn, thanks for that tidbit.
