What model formats were you looking for? There are plenty of parsers or parser tutorials out there for the more common model formats.

That depends on some facts.
-Which format has the file you want to parse? (e.g. XML)
-What kind of data do you want to retrieve from that file?
-etc.

Maybe there is a manual or something where you can lookup the structure of the file format?

(You wan't to parse a specific file format,don't you?)

How about using FBX? The format is supported by many Autodesk programs.

Autodesk provides an extensive SDK including model viewer example in C++.

Cheers!

There are plenty of obj and 3ds loaders out there. Specifications can be found at wotsit.org.
There is collada (xml based).
After you are done with those formats, create your own.
