Advanced Programming in the UNIX (R) Environment by W. Richard Stevens

By W. Richard Stevens

"Stephen Rago's replace is a protracted past due profit to the neighborhood of execs utilizing the flexible relatives of UNIX and UNIX-like working environments. It eliminates obsolescence and contains more moderen advancements. It additionally completely updates the context of all subject matters, examples, and purposes to contemporary releases of well known implementations of UNIX and UNIX-like environments. And but, it does all this whereas maintaining the fashion and flavor of the unique classic." --Mukesh Kacker, cofounder and previous CTO of Pronto Networks, Inc. "One of the basic classics of UNIX programming." --Eric S. Raymond, writer of The paintings of UNIX Programming "This is the definitive reference ebook for any severe or expert UNIX platforms programmer. Rago has up to date and prolonged the vintage Stevens textual content whereas retaining real to the unique. The APIs are illuminated by way of transparent examples in their use. He additionally mentions a number of the pitfalls to seem out for whilst programming throughout diverse UNIX process implementations and issues out tips to steer clear of those pitfalls utilizing proper criteria corresponding to POSIX 1003.1, 2004 version and the only UNIX Specification, model 3." --Andrew Josey, Director, Certification, The Open crew, and Chair of the POSIX 1003.1 operating crew "Advanced Programming within the UNIX(R) atmosphere, moment variation, is a vital reference for an individual writing courses for a UNIX approach. it is the first ebook I flip to whilst i need to appreciate or re-learn any of many of the procedure interfaces. Stephen Rago has effectively revised this ebook to include more moderen working platforms comparable to GNU/Linux and Apple's OS X whereas holding real to the 1st variation by way of either clarity and usability. it's going to consistently have a spot correct subsequent to my computer." --Dr. Benjamin Kuperman, Swarthmore university compliment for the 1st version "Advanced Programming within the UNIX(R) setting is a must have for any critical C programmer who works less than UNIX. Its intensity, thoroughness, and readability of explana-tion are unmatched." --UniForum per thirty days "Numerous readers urged complex Programming within the UNIX(R) setting through W. Richard Stevens (Addison-Wesley), and i am pleased they did; I hadn't even heard of this booklet, and it has been out due to the fact 1992. I simply obtained my palms on a duplicate, and the 1st few chapters were fascinating." --Open structures at the present time "A even more readable and distinctive remedy of UNIX internals are available in complicated Programming within the UNIX(R) atmosphere via W. Richard Stevens (Addison-Wesley). This publication contains plenty of sensible examples, and that i locate it really worthy whilst i've got platforms programming projects to do." --RS/Magazine "This is the definitive reference publication for any critical or specialist UNIX platforms programmer. Rago has up to date and prolonged the unique Stevens vintage whereas protecting precise to the original." --Andrew Josey, Director, Certification, The Open team, and Chair of the POSIX 1003.1 operating crew For over a decade, critical C programmers have depended on one booklet for functional, in-depth wisdom of the programming interfaces that force the UNIX and Linux kernels: W. Richard Stevens' complicated Programming within the UNIX(R) surroundings. Now, Stevens' colleague Stephen Rago has completely up-to-date this vintage to mirror the newest technical advances and upload aid for trendy major UNIX and Linux systems. Rago rigorously keeps the spirit and process that made this e-book a vintage. development on Stevens' paintings, he starts off with uncomplicated themes akin to records, directories, and methods, rigorously laying the basis for knowing extra complex options, reminiscent of sign dealing with and terminal I/O. massive new fabric comprises chapters on threads and multithreaded programming, utilizing the socket interface to force interprocess verbal exchange (IPC), and broad insurance of the interfaces further to the most recent model of the POSIX.1 common. approximately all examples were verified on 4 of brand new most generally used UNIX/Linux structures: FreeBSD 5.2.1; the Linux 2.4.22 kernel; Solaris nine; and Darwin 7.4.0, the FreeBSD/Mach hybrid underlying Apple's Mac OS X 10.3. As within the first version, you will research via instance, together with greater than 10,000 traces of downloadable, ANSI C resource code. greater than four hundred approach calls and services are established with concise, whole courses that essentially illustrate their utilization, arguments, and go back values. To tie jointly what you have discovered, the e-book provides a number of chapter-length case reports, every one totally up to date for modern environments. complex Programming within the UNIX(R) setting has helped a iteration of programmers write code with extraordinary energy, functionality, and reliability. Now up-to-date for brand new UNIX/Linux structures, this moment variation may be much more quintessential.

Sample text

H> and specify the file descriptors for standard input and standard output. These values are typically 0 and 1, respectively, but we'll use the new names for portability. 9, we'll examine the BUFFSIZE constant in detail, seeing how various values affect the efficiency of the program. Regardless of the value of this constant, however, this program still copies any regular file. The read function returns the number of bytes that are read, and this value is used as the number of bytes to write. When the end of the input file is encountered, read returns 0 and the program stops.

Linux uses the Bourne-again shell for its default shell. In fact, /bin/sh is a link to /bin/bash. The default user shell in FreeBSD and Mac OS X is the TENEX C shell, but they use the Bourne shell for their administrative shell scripts because the C shell's programming language is notoriously difficult to use. 2. Free ports of most of the shells are available on the Internet. Throughout the text, we will use parenthetical notes such as this to describe historical notes and to compare different implementations of the UNIX System.

3. com to register it. 4. 1, which includes the functions specified in the ISO C standard. Its interfaces are divided into required ones and optional ones. The optional interfaces are further divided into 50 sections, based on functionality. 5 with their respective option codes. Option codes are two- to three-character abbreviations that help identify the interfaces that belong to each functional area. The option codes highlight text on manual pages where interfaces depend on the support of a particular option.
