This book's innovative approach helps readers at all levels to truly understand how TCP/IP really works. Rather than just describing what the RFCs say the protocol suite should do, TCP/IP Illustrated uses a popular diagnostic tool so you can actually watch the protocols in action. By forcing certain conditions to occur (connection establishment, timeout and retransmission, fragmentation, etc.) and watching the results, Rich Stevens provides insight into how the protocols work, and why certain design decisions were made. Written in his well-known style with lots of examples, Stevens shows how current, popular TCP/IP implementations operate (SunOS 4.1.3, Solaris 2.2, System V Release 4, BSD/386, AIX 3.2.2, and 4.4 BSD), and relates these real-world implementations to the RFC standards.

"Stephen Rago's update is a long overdue benefit to the community of professionals using the versatile family of UNIX and UNIX-like operating environments. It removes obsolescence and includes newer developments. It also thoroughly updates the context of all topics, examples, and applications to recent releases of popular implementations of UNIX and UNIX-like environments. And yet, it does all this while retaining the style and taste of the original classic." --Mukesh Kacker, cofounder and former CTO of Pronto Networks, Inc. "One of the essential classics of UNIX programming." --Eric S. Raymond, author of The Art of UNIX Programming "This is the definitive reference book for any serious or professional UNIX systems programmer. Rago has updated and extended the classic Stevens text while keeping true to the original. The APIs are illuminated by clear examples of their use. He also mentions many of the pitfalls to look out for when programming across different UNIX system implementations and points out how to avoid these pitfalls using relevant standards such as POSIX 1003.1, 2004 edition and the Single UNIX Specification, Version 3." --Andrew Josey, Director, Certification, The Open Group, and Chair of the POSIX 1003.1 Working Group "Advanced Programming in the UNIX® Environment, Second Edition, is an essential reference for anyone writing programs for a UNIX system. It's the first book I turn to when I want to understand or re-learn any of the various system interfaces. Stephen Rago has successfully revised this book to incorporate newer operating systems such as GNU/Linux and Apple's OS X while keeping true to the first edition in terms of both readability and usefulness. It will always have a place right next to my computer." --Dr. Benjamin Kuperman, Swarthmore College Praise for the First Edition "Advanced Programming in the UNIX® Environment is a must-have for any serious C programmer who works under UNIX. Its depth, thoroughness, and clarity of explana-tion are unmatched." --UniForum Monthly "Numerous readers recommended Advanced Programming in the UNIX® Environment by W. Richard Stevens (Addison-Wesley), and I'm glad they did; I hadn't even heard of this book, and it's been out since 1992. I just got my hands on a copy, and the first few chapters have been fascinating." --Open Systems Today "A much more readable and detailed treatment of UNIX internals can be found in Advanced Programming in the UNIX® Environment by W. Richard Stevens (Addison-Wesley). This book includes lots of realistic examples, and I find it quite helpful when I have systems programming tasks to do." --RS/Magazine "This is the definitive reference book for any serious or professional UNIX systems programmer. Rago has updated and extended the original Stevens classic while keeping true to the original." --Andrew Josey, Director, Certification, The Open Group, and Chair of the POSIX 1003.1 Working Group For over a decade, serious C programmers have relied on one book for practical, in-depth knowledge of the programming interfaces that drive the UNIX and Linux kernels: W. Richard Stevens' Advanced Programming in the UNIX® Environment . Now, Stevens' colleague Stephen Rago has thoroughly updated this classic to reflect the latest technical advances and add support for today's leading UNIX and Linux platforms. Rago carefully retains the spirit and approach that made this book a classic. Building on Stevens' work, he begins with basic topics such as files, directories, and processes, carefully laying the groundwork for understanding more advanced techniques, such as signal handling and terminal I/O. Substantial new material includes chapters on threads and multithreaded programming, using the socket interface to drive interprocess communication (IPC), and extensive coverage of the interfaces added to the latest version of the POSIX.1 standard. Nearly all examples have been tested on four of today's most widely used UNIX/Linux platforms: FreeBSD 5.2.1; the Linux 2.4.22 kernel; Solaris 9; and Darwin 7.4.0, the FreeBSD/Mach hybrid underlying Apple's Mac OS X 10.3. As in the first edition, you'll learn through example, including more than 10,000 lines of downloadable, ANSI C source code. More than 400 system calls and functions are demonstrated with concise, complete programs that clearly illustrate their usage, arguments, and return values. To tie together what you've learned, the book presents several chapter-length case studies, each fully updated for contemporary environments. Advanced Programming in the UNIX® Environment has helped a generation of programmers write code with exceptional power, performance, and reliability. Now updated for today's UNIX/Linux systems, this second edition will be even more indispensable.

A practical book that explains many of the details that have been considered a mystery, this guidebook focuses on the design, development, and coding of networking software under the UNIX operating system. It begins by showing how a fundamental basic for networking programming is interprocess communication (IPC), and a requisite for understanding IPC is a knowledge of what constitutes a process. Throughout, the text provides both a description and examples of how and why a particular solution is arrived at.

Building on the successful top-down approach of previous editions, this edition continues with an early emphasis on application-layer paradigms and application programming interfaces, encouraging a hands-on experience with protocols and networking concepts.
To guide readers through the new scripting language, Python, this book discusses every aspect of client and server programming. And as Python begins to replace Perl as a favorite programming language, this book will benefit scripters and serious application developers who want a feature-rich, yet simple language, for deploying their products. The text explains multitasking network servers using several models, including forking, threading, and non-blocking sockets. Furthermore, the extensive examples demonstrate important concepts and practices, and provide a cadre of fully-functioning stand alone programs. Readers may even use the provided examples as building blocks to create their own software.

With the release of .NET, Microsoft has once again altered the distributed programming landscape. Almost everything has changed, from data access, to remote object calls, to the deployment of software components. And of course, .NET introduces a new technology in XML Web services that may revolutionize Web development. Distributed .NET Programming in C# describes how to use these new .NET technologies to build fast, scalable, and robust distributed applications. Along the way, it answers common questions such as, How do I use the .NET Remoting Framework? What role does COM+ play in the .NET universe? How can I interoperate with COM components? What's the difference between .NET Remoting and Web services? How will these changes affect the architecture and design of a distributed application? Author Tom Barnaby assumes the reader is already familiar with the fundamentals of .NET. However, a .NET overview is provided to concisely explain several of the core .NET technologies that are essential for distributed programming, including building, versioning, and deploying assemblies; garbage collection; serialization; and attribute-based programming.
In The Embedded Internet Sergio Scaglia examines the techniques that programmers will need to learn to obtain internet connectivity for their embedded systems. Sometimes this will be relatively straight-forward, using TCP/IP stack implementations which already exist. Sometimes, this will be much more difficult, requiring whole new implementations to be developed. Either way, The Embedded Internet will be the ideal starting place for programmers to learn and develop these skills. The book is structured in three parts. The first part comprehensively covers TCP/IP. This gives the reader the necessary background knowledge of the internet that they will need when considering embedded systems connectivity. The second part details how to implement embedded internet systems. The third and final part gives a conceptual overview of just a handful of the countless ways in which internet connectivity can benefit an embedded system.
