It's a big subject. I have an excellent book called Bike Cult
Which has an extensive section on the history, design, and functionality of various bike parts.
It might interest you to know that the now-standard "diamond" frame dates to the turn of the century, and models from the very early 1900s look essentially identical to frames made today.

Having absorbed much of it, I feel completely confident in my ability to totally confuse you, myself and anyone else willing to listen. However, to put it simply: In the end, a frame that you can afford and that is comfortable is more important than any other factor.
But to your question, here's a link that might be helpful:
