What is the difference in including header files within angular braces < > and double quotes “ “ ?

If a header file is included with in < > then the compiler searches for the header file only in the include path. 

If a header file is included with in “ “, then the compiler searches for the particular header file first in the current working directory, if not found then in the include path.
