Understanding header files and libraries: C Essential Training

Header files are brought into source code by using the #include preprocessor directive to help with function prototypes, variable definitions, and macros. Libraries contain the routines that make C language functions work for a specific hardware platform. It's important for a C programmer to know the difference between header files and libraries for them to fully understand the language.
