In corresponding header files. The header file consists of all the predefined function defintions..so whenever we need the functions, we declare (means include) that particular header file) and calling the function by specifying parameter values.
eg. strcpy(x,y); by declaring string.h header..
I hope i am right... if not sorry...

Just a correction,most of C built-in functions are just declared in the corresponding header, their implementation (or if you prefer the real definition) is in the c run time library most of the time (except for math function that are in the math library that you have to link to when using them).
