Advanced Programming in the UNIX (R) Environment by W. Richard Stevens

By W. Richard Stevens

"Stephen Rago's replace is a protracted past due profit to the group of execs utilizing the flexible kin of UNIX and UNIX-like working environments. It eliminates obsolescence and comprises more moderen advancements. It additionally completely updates the context of all issues, examples, and purposes to contemporary releases of well known implementations of UNIX and UNIX-like environments. And but, it does all this whereas holding the fashion and flavor of the unique classic." --Mukesh Kacker, cofounder and previous CTO of Pronto Networks, Inc. "One of the basic classics of UNIX programming." --Eric S. Raymond, writer of The paintings of UNIX Programming "This is the definitive reference publication for any severe or expert UNIX structures programmer. Rago has up-to-date and prolonged the vintage Stevens textual content whereas retaining precise to the unique. The APIs are illuminated by means of transparent examples in their use. He additionally mentions the various pitfalls to appear out for while programming throughout various UNIX approach implementations and issues out how one can stay away from those pitfalls utilizing suitable criteria reminiscent of POSIX 1003.1, 2004 variation and the only UNIX Specification, model 3." --Andrew Josey, Director, Certification, The Open workforce, and Chair of the POSIX 1003.1 operating staff "Advanced Programming within the UNIX(R) atmosphere, moment variation, is an important reference for a person writing courses for a UNIX method. it is the first booklet I flip to while i would like to appreciate or re-learn any of a few of the process interfaces.

Rago has up to date and prolonged the unique Stevens vintage whereas retaining actual to the original." --Andrew Josey, Director, Certification, The Open crew, and Chair of the POSIX 1003.1 operating team For over a decade, severe C programmers have trusted one booklet for sensible, in-depth wisdom of the programming interfaces that force the UNIX and Linux kernels: W. Richard Stevens' complicated Programming within the UNIX(R) atmosphere. Now, Stevens' colleague Stephen Rago has completely up-to-date this vintage to mirror the most recent technical advances and upload help for ultra-modern prime UNIX and Linux systems. Rago conscientiously keeps the spirit and strategy that made this publication a vintage. construction on Stevens' paintings, he starts with simple issues corresponding to records, directories, and strategies, conscientiously laying the foundation for figuring out extra complex recommendations, similar to sign dealing with and terminal I/O. monstrous new fabric contains chapters on threads and multithreaded programming, utilizing the socket interface to force interprocess communique (IPC), and wide insurance of the interfaces extra to the most recent model of the POSIX.1 typical. approximately all examples were proven on 4 of modern most generally used UNIX/Linux structures: FreeBSD 5.2.1; the Linux 2.4.22 kernel; Solaris nine; and Darwin 7.4.0, the FreeBSD/Mach hybrid underlying Apple's Mac OS X 10.3. As within the first version, you will research via instance, together with greater than 10,000 strains of downloadable, ANSI C resource code. greater than four hundred method calls and features are verified with concise, entire courses that truly illustrate their utilization, arguments, and go back values. To tie jointly what you've gotten realized, the ebook offers a number of chapter-length case stories, each one totally up to date for modern environments. complex Programming within the UNIX(R) atmosphere has helped a iteration of programmers write code with unheard of energy, functionality, and reliability.

Intelligent Help Systems for UNIX by Stephen J. Hegner (Editor), Paul Mc Kevitt (Editor), Peter

By Stephen J. Hegner (Editor), Paul Mc Kevitt (Editor), Peter Norvig (Editor), Robert Wilensky (Editor)

During this overseas number of papers there's a wealth of wisdom on man made intelligence (AI) and cognitive technological know-how (CS) options utilized to the matter of delivering support platforms generally for the UNIX working procedure. The learn defined the following contains the illustration of technical computing device thoughts, but in addition the illustration of the way clients conceptualise such ideas. The assortment appears at computational types and structures reminiscent of UC, Yucca, and OSCON programmed in languages corresponding to Lisp, Prolog, OPS-5, and C which were built to supply UNIX support. those platforms variety from being menu-based to ones with common language interfaces, a few delivering lively aid, intervening after they think the consumer to have misconceptions, and a few in response to empirical stories of what clients really do whereas utilizing UNIX. additional papers examine making plans and wisdom illustration the place the point of interest is on researching what the consumer desires to do, and knowing how to do it, in addition to representing the data had to achieve this. there's a major concentrate on ordinary language discussion the place session structures can develop into energetic, incorporating person modfelling, normal language new release and plan popularity, modelling metaphors, and clients' incorrect ideals. a lot will be realized from seeing how AI and CS ideas may be investigated intensive whereas being utilized to a true test-bed area equivalent to assistance on UNIX.
