Solaris™ 7 Reference

Book Description


2004H-5

  • Thoroughly cross-referenced and packed with comprehensive examples for administrators and programmers

  • Easy-to-understand explanations of UNIX commands and options in a user-friendly format

  • A complete, plain English reference guide to all of the Section (1) man pages from acctcom to zcat

  • Award-winning author Janice Winsor's Solaris 7 Reference is an essential resource for users, system administrators, and programmers. It provides clear and understandable descriptions of more than 450 UNIX commands.

    Starting with a convenient, task-oriented quick reference that lists commands by function, it goes beyond standard "manual page" descriptions to provide comprehensive examples and more in-depth information than the online documentation. Both experienced programmers and users of all levels will find the extensive examples to be time-saving aids to understanding the full power and flexibility of key commands.

    Solaris 7 Reference contains complete, accurate, and accessible syntax and option information for hundreds of tasks including:

  • Communication

  • File Management

  • System Status

  • Archiving

  • Printing

  • Text Processing

  • Shell Programming

  • Searching

  • Its complete coverage, logical organization, and Janice Winsor's easy-to-understand style of presentation make this the one UNIX command reference everyone working in a Solaris environment needs.
