Sorry, but there's not really much point in explaining the very basics
of a programming language as part of the docs of any particular
compiler. That's what reference books and textbooks are for. Like K&R2
for C, or Stroustrup (3rd ed.) for C++.
Apart from that, '#include' is documented (see the 'The GNU C
Preprocessor' in info), I think, as is #pragma.
In the case of C++ standard libs like iostreams, we rely on what the
GNU project gives us (they write the library --> they document it).
