The first edition of Unix Unleashed provided a thick, comprehensive guide to the basic tools of the Unix trade, covering everything from system administration to the windowing system to the compiler environments. The guide also featured information on other tools, such as the vi editor, the command shells, the AWK, PERL, C and C++ languages, and instructions on text formatting, version control, and security features.
The current edition improves on earlier releases with a beefy section on Internet technologies--the HTTP protocol, Web servers, CGI programming, MIME, and even a basic guide to HTML. Sections addressing specific issues with particular implementations of Unix, including Advanced Interactive Executive (AIX), Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD), Linux, Solaris, HP-UX, IRIX, and SVR4 round out this handy reference guide. The book also includes a jargon glossary and copious FAQ document in case any or all of these topics are completely unfamiliar. Finally, the book includes a CD-ROM with a full binary release version of FreeBSD 2.2.5, Linux Red Hat 4.2 release for x86, Perl 5.x, a host of utilities, and an electronic version of both this book and its companion System Administrator's Edition.
