Can anyone suggest a good Unix book? I want a book that is good to
learn from but won't be so simple that I will outgrow it - ie. it should
also be a good reference book.
Thanks in advance.
In my opinion, if you want a REAL Unix book,Quote:>Can anyone suggest a good Unix book? I want a book that is good to

Title: The UNIX Programming Environment
Copyright Date: 1984
I've had my copy since 1986, and I STILL get good
mileage out of it every now and then.
The book explains the real spirit in which Unix was
intended to be used and extended, and covers many
different angles, such as interacting with the shell,
and shell programming, and C programming, etc.
I have the need to learn advanced UNIX programming topics like
multi-threaded applications programming, driver writing and systems
programming. I will just be using C (ie, gcc, cc). A good treatment of the
standard Unix C api's would be good as well. Does anybody have any
favorites or suggestions?
Thanks ... Scott
