For years, programmers have turned to Advanced UNIX Programming for its clear, expert advice on how to use the key functions reliably.

Since 1985, the one book to have for mastering UNIX application programming has been Rochkind's Advanced UNIX Programming.

Now completely updated, Advanced UNIX Programming, Second Edition, remains the choice for up-to-the-minute, in-depth coverage of the essential system-level services of the UNIX family of operating systems. Advanced UNIX Programming brings the book fully up to date, with all-new comprehensive coverage including:

  • POSIX
  • Solaris™
  • Linux®
  • FreeBSD
  • Darwin, the Mac™ OS X kernel
  • And more than 200 new system calls

Register readers can get Advanced UNIX Programming, the completely updated classic guide to UNIX® programming, for just £24.49.
