But the UNIX industry is vastly different today from what it was when the book was first published. The System V variants are slowly being replaced by Linux. The major system vendors that ship their hardware with their own versions of the UNIX System have either made Linux ports available or announced support for Linux.
After 4. The introduction of Linux, supported by thousands of volunteers, has made it possible for anyone with a computer to run an operating system similar to the UNIX System, with freely available source code for the newest hardware devices. The success of Linux is something of a curiosity, given that several free BSD alternatives are readily available.
Continuing its trend as an innovative company, Apple Computer abandoned its old Mac operating system and replaced it with one based on Mach and FreeBSD. Thus, I've tried to update the information presented in this book to reflect these four platforms. I hope you find this revision equally useful. Changes from the First Edition Rich's work holds up well. Richard Stevens , Stephen A. Premium Website Sorry, this book is no longer in print.

I had been using Stevens' books as my references, and I noticed his email address in the preface. Imagine my surprise upon my return when I saw 2 return emails waiting!
He explained in great detail what I was doing wrong conceptually, and gave exacting instructions on how to make a certain part work. In the second email, he said it didn't sit well with him to leave me with an "unoptimal solution" his words , so on his own time he came up with an even better paradigm, and sent actual tested code to implement it!
What can I say? His books will always grace my shelf. Would you care to share the tips he provided? The cool thing is that you hear anecdotes like that about the guy a lot. It sounds as though he was a genuinely good person.
I know the man pages are available, but the book is definitely better, and I end up lending it to a friend when he was doing the same course.
As a production manager, I would dread having to troubleshoot something like that. On the other hand, I wouldn't mind it if the author had to troubleshoot it himself. I look at open-source typesetting programs a lot, and while I like the idea, I'm bewildered by how I could keep a book on schedule the way I can with Quark or InDesign in a coding language.
The Troff website is a little obtuse at the moment, but I wouldn't mind learning more. In the Cafe jaro I think the Pragmatic Programmers [pragprog. You probably should have looked up the term online before posting such a mean-spirited comment. Analphabetic is a word and it has many meanings: I'm giving the link because it's so weirdly applicable; how often do I get to reference a passage about authors who self-index?
Back in reality, I agree with Tom: Friedl's book and index are perfect. I don't mean to sound like a troll, but I already have a few similar books in my dusty collection I don't know what's new, but you can forget putting on pants: Actually this guy is all wrong.
He's wrong about checking with the wife. What you do is download the books, all of them at once. Then tell your wife you blew the cash at the strip club. Ah, yes Cornerstone Books Score: I see we have a packet collision between my attempt to be funny and your attempt to state the obvious.
No farm, no fowl. But, I rather like python and am fairly proficient at it. But I might pick this up, just to see if it has any relevant information. Love Stevens work, but I fear that this new edition might not be as good as the original just because its not Stevens. Stevens is one of my Heroes of the Comp Sci world, and I pray that his soul is doing well in heaven.
I'll just wait until my other friends tell me that the coast is clear. Couldn't have put it better my self. I haven't done any system programming in a while, but this book is indespensible for anyone who has a working knowledge of C and is interested in learning some good system programming. Don't let the name fool you, no previous system programming experience required.
I remember reading that all the Stevens books were typeset with troff. I wonder if this new edition has been typset the same way? Another heavy book Score: Now that programming environments such as Java and C exist most of those book just gathering dust. It's not as if Java and C are the only languages anyone's developing in anymore. While many applications can be written for Java and C or LAMP, or one of many other "platform indepedent" development environments, there are many types of applications that absolutely cannot be because they need access to OS-level or hardware-level APIs.
I have no problem downloading these books. Except when I know a newer edition is coming out next year, I mind as well wait.
Another way of looking at this I've noticed that most of the books that I download today are about software development methologies i. TDD, Agile, re-factoring etc. I tend to go to the Internet for find the answers to implementing detail and view APIs. The reason dead tree still sells is that there is a great deal of convenience to having all the pertinent answers in one spot.
Additionally, with Stevens work, the answers are not only pertinent but with analysis that is deep and insightful, with copious examples that are invariably correct, and usually represent the best way or ways, with analysis as to which form is superior based on what it is you're trying to accomplish to do the task.
Dry, unadorned documentation about APIs give no suggestions as to best implementation, or often where to look or what to try when things go wrong. Sure, you can look at other coders' code if you can find something akin to what you're trying to accomplish , but it's obviously a sub-optimal solution. Online knowledge is great, don't get me wrong You are according to your webpage an Eclipse developer.
This means that you would not be likely to run into OS-specific things any more than a Win32 developer would care about the details of how named pipes are handled on Unix.
As someone new to Score: Bieng one of these people, would I benefit more from Stevens book than this title? Or would this one make a better selection?
Should both of them grace my bookshelf? Well, since this is a rewrite with some new additions of the Stevens title, either will work. As for your case, I'd say yes, download one. The original Stevens was amazing- it explained how to use a Posix OS from the basics of file operations through networking and concurrency. If you haven't ever done systems level programming on Unix, this is THE place to start. If you're going to do systems level programming in Unix, this book is a must!
Whether or not you would benefit from it elsewise depends on how much the frameworks you use insulate you from the gory details of libc and system calls. Table of contents Score: The first thing I like to check in a new book is the table of contents, yet the book homepage doesn't seem to have it. I hate it when they do that, I'll have to look for it in the publisher 's website.
I've got another one of his books Score: It was written in '93 and deals with 4. It's a really good book. My first network-aware programs were written using this book.
There's examples for several different protocols and a deep discussion of Sun RPC. Concurrency takes a couple of chapters and id. Ack, ok. It's actually written by Comer and "David L. I didn't double-check it before posting, my bad. The dude sure wrote a couple of good books. Even as references they were very usefull.
Now how should I interpret the return for recv again? It explains everything you need to know for both clients and servers, discusses the various threading and forking models servers use, covers pthreads, and touches on lots of other essential subjects. Later in the book Stevens goes on to explain the protocols in depth, developing ping and traceroute clients using raw sockets.
With help from this chapter I successfully scared the crap out of a nearby friend by blas. UNP comes off my shelf every time I have to write network-related code. Maybe you should try reading the book instead of using it as a reference. A related recommendation Score: Stevens' books are always great, and this one is no exception.
I use this book regularly and I highly recommend it. But that aside, there is another shorter and somewhat overlapping book: Advanced Unix Programming: Rockhind, that I highly recommend anyone who might like the reviewed Stevens book should check out as well.
Link was the only bn. Along the same lines another great book Unix Network Programming Volume 2 [barnesandnoble. Marc J. Rockhind Sounds like a real hard-ass!! I also have Advanced Unix Programming, and i have to say i love the book. I will certainly be picking Steven's book up at barnes and nobles when i get a chance to drop in.
