Header files are a feature of some programming languages (C and C++) that allows programmers to separate certain elements of a program's source code into reusable files. Header files commonly contain forward declarations of classes, subroutines, variables, and other identifiers. Programmers who wish to declare standardized identifiers in more than one source file can place such identifiers in a single header file, which other code can then include whenever the header contents are required. The C standard library and C++ standard library traditionally declare their standard functions in header files.
