Learn how to design and implement reliable UNIX software whether
you are using Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X, or another POSIX-based
This completely updated classic (originally titled Practical
UNIX Programming) demonstrates how to design complex software
to get the most from the UNIX operating system. UNIX Systems
Programming provides a clear and easy-to-understand introduction to
the essentials of UNIX programming. Starting with short code
snippets that illustrate how to use system calls, Robbins and
Robbins move quickly to hands-on projects that help readers expand
their skill levels.
This practical guide thoroughly explores communication, concurrency,and multithreading. Known for its comprehensive and lucid explanationsof complicated topics such as signals and concurrency, the bookfeatures practical examples, exercises, reusable code, and simplifiedlibraries for use in network communication applications.
A self-contained reference that relies on the latest UNIX standards,UNIX Systems Programming provides thorough coverage of files, signals,semaphores, POSIX threads, and client-server communication. Thisedition features all-new chapters on the Web, UDP, and serverperformance. The sample material has been tested extensively in theclassroom.
