I think you'll find that "low level coding" has a very different
meaning under Unix (and Linux) than for DOS. Only device drivers go
straight to the hardware and then only under strict rules to maintain
Everything has a defined programming interface, which you do NOT want
For application level system calls, read section 2 of the manual pages.
Kernel-level stuff is changing too fast to be well documented yet.
Check out the Kernel Hackers Guide
is probably the best place to get started.
Better, get a good Unix programming book. "The Unix Programming
Environment" by Kernighan and Pike is a classic starting place.
