This doesn't answer your C++ part of the question, but you should have 
the Kernighan & Ritchie "The C Programming Language" and then
get something like "C A Reference Manual"  (Latest edition is 5th I think)
by Harbison and Steele.    After that you might look at "C Programming FAQs" 
by Steve Summit.
