Description - The Linux Programming Interface by Michael Kerrisk
The Linux Programming Interface describes the Linux API
(application programming interface)-the system calls,
library functions, and other low-level interfaces that
are used, directly or indirectly, by every program that
runs on Linux. Programs that explicitly use these
interfaces are commonly called system programs, and
include applications such as shells, editors, windowing
systems, terminal emulators, file managers, compilers,
database management systems, virtual machines, network
servers, and much of the other software that is employed
on a daily basis on Linux systems. Extensively indexed
and heavily cross-referenced, The Linux Programming
Interface is both an introductory guide for readers new
to the topic of system programming, and a comprehensive
reference for experienced system programmers. Although
this book goes into detail on a wealth of Linux-specific
features, it gives careful attention to contemporary Unix
programming standards and to portability issues.
