Marc J. Rochkind
The long-awaited revision to one of the foundation titles in UNIX programming covers the latest POSIX standards, updated for Linux, FreeBSD, and Mac OS X. Includes a wide range of examples, including a Web browser, a Web server, a keystroke recorder/player and a real shell. Rochkind is regarded as one of the pioneers in UNIX programming, and this book is a true classic.

Featuring an introduction to operating systems, this work reflects advances in OS design and implementation.

Linus Torvalds, David Diamond
Once upon a time Linus Torvalds was a skinny unknown, just another nerdy Helsinki techie who had been fooling around with computers since childhood. Then he wrote a groundbreaking operating system and distributed it via the Internet -- for free. Today Torvalds is an international folk hero. And his creation LINUX is used by over 12 million people as well as by companies such as IBM. Now, in a narrative that zips along with the speed of e-mail, Torvalds gives a history of his renegade software while candidly revealing the quirky mind of a genius. The result is an engrossing portrayal of a man with a revolutionary vision, who challenges our values and may change our world.
