AFAIK there isn't such a document. The files in /usr/include are just the
standard ANSI header files, Linux/Unix header files, and header files for
other packages you installed (X, GTK+, Qt, GNOME, KDE, etc.).

"The C programming language", 2nd edition, by Brian Kernighan and Dennis
Ritchie. This is just about standard ANSI C, no DOS or Unix extentions.
For Unix programming topics, I use "Advanced programming in the UNIX
environment" by W. Richard Stevens.
