What's the difference between corn starch, corn meal, & corn flour?

I'm sorry for sounding so ignorant, I'm a beginner in the baking/cooking world.

Thanks!

    Corn starch is a light powder used for thickening soups and sauces, corn meal is a heartier version of flour- it has a grainer texture- good for polenta and corn bread, cornflower is the type of either of these- a better answer can be found on Wikipedia

    Starch is starch. When you put idodine on it it turns blue.

    Flour is from grinding the entire seed.

    Corn meal is a little bit of both with salt and it is more like oatmeal comparing oatmeal to flour. It is ready to be cooked and eaten as it is a meal.
