Linux Programming by Example

30% off hands-on guide

Site Offer Programmers know that the best way to learn about programming is to study well-written programs. Linux Programming by Example introduces new Linux programmers to the core Linux programming interfaces in a gradual, consistent fashion, progressing intuitively from the basic to the more complex. Written by the best-selling author of UNIX in a Nutshell, this book is the perfect introduction to Linux programming fundamentals for developers new to Linux and is ideal for Windows programmers making the switch!

This book teaches the fundamental Linux programming interfaces, those that form the core of any significant program, by presenting example code from real-world production programs that Linux users use every day. Gradually, one step at a time, Robbins teaches both high-level principles and “under the hood” techniques. By looking at concrete programs, its possible not only to see how to use the Linux programming interfaces, but also to examine the real-world issues (performance, portability, robustness) that arise in writing Linux software. Coverage includes:

  • Memory management
  • File I/O
  • File metadata
  • Processes
  • Users and groups
  • Sorting and searching
  • Argument parsing
  • Extended interfaces
  • Signals
  • Internationalization
  • Debugging
  • And more…
