Where are the standard header files located?

Where typically do the standard header files for C++ reside on the linux filesystem? i.e where are the header files like fstream.h, string.h etc located?

On my system (and I assume most systems are similar) the location is /usr/include for generic includes. /usr/include/c++/{gcc version} seems to have the C++ includes you seek.
