I'm new to linux programming, and I'd like to learn how to do it. I have
some previous experience writing in C++, Java, Perl, and Visual Basic. (But
only a few small projects in each).
I'm thinking of writing a program to take a bookmark file in xbel format
and use http to check the last-changed date of each bookmark against a file
saved when you last ran the program, so that you can see which sites have
changed and are worth revisiting.
If I was only going to do this bit, I could write it as a command line
utility in perl, which I already pretty much know how to do, but I'd like
to try C++, firstly to get experience writing for linux in a different
language, and secondly because I have some thoughts about how I might
develop this program into a bigger mini-application, and I think a compiled
language might be better for this.
Can anyone recommend any books or web sites that are worth reading about
how to get started on linux programming?
