I moved to Linux after some time programming in Windows (on VC++) and so I suddenly I cannot acces my MSDN (and I cannot connect to inet every time I need something in documentation). I wonder if there's some documentation on pure C++ (including the C standard library, C++ one and STL, but no Qt, nor Kde, ...). Or if there's a way how to run the offline MSDN on Linux (I think, that no... - it's Microsoft ). I've been searching for some time on internet, but found nothing (useful). I think, that here must be some C++ Linux programmer with modem Oxyd --- Unreadable code is code written on a piece of paper, but not the one, in which its programmer is using a space in place you don''t.

You can grab a draft copy of the C++ standard in PDF from
http://www.comnets.rwth-aachen.de/doc/c++std.html

The last draft is close enough to the final to work off of as a reference.

For most of the standard C library you can use the man pages. e.g. type "man malloc" at the console.

I''d give so-so odds that you can run the MSDN library application with WINE.

The groups that make the libraries (glibc and libstdc++, in this case) provide documentation. You can probably download "glibc-doc" and "libstdc++-doc" type packages from where ever you download other distro-related things. Or, you can browse them online here and here (or, to drop you more directly into the latter, here).
