Site Offer Sun Microsystems' Solaris Operating Environment boasts a significant installed base, but the intricacies of programming in this UNIX environment have been unaddressed by any book…….until now.

Solaris Systems Programming is a comprehensive text that Solaris practitioners will refer to time and again as they face and overcome the significant challenges of their everyday work. Using real-world case studies, code examples, and diagrams, Rich Teer (a former Sun Microsystems, Inc. consultant, long-time C programmer, and tech reviewer) explains both the "how" and "why" of Solaris systems programming - helping any C programmer write efficient, reliable code.

The book covers all versions of the Solaris OS, from 2.5 through 9 and is relevant to both SPARC and x86 platforms. From I/O to IPC, pseudo terminals to localization, and processes to doors,Teer illuminates the unique features and subtleties of this environment as never before.
