Book Description

In a nutshell, this updated UNIX classic covers everything you'll ever need for threads, TCP/IP and RPC programming—with reusable code examples that explain syntax along the way. Robbins and Robbins explain the essentials of UNIX programming, concentrating on communication, concurrency, and multithreading techniques and why, when, and how to use them. They also show how to design complex software to get the best from the UNIX operating system. Using short code snippets to illustrate how to use system calls, they also include a number of hands-on "projects" that very quickly help readers expand their skill levels. The book includes chapters on files, signals, semaphores, POSIX threads, client-server communication, and remote procedure calls. There are also short examples, working code, and simplified libraries for use in network communication applications featured throughout the book. The updated Second Edition includes all-new chapters on the Web and multicast and a completely revised and updated RPC chapter.

The publisher, Prentice-Hall ECS Professional
Well written and comprehensive, this book explains complicated topics such as signals and concurrency in a simple, easy-to-understand manner. The book offers an abundance of practical examples and exercises. This book is comparable to other best-selling UNIX books, such as UNIX Network Programming, by Richard Stevens. Covers fundamentals, asynchronous events, concurrency, and communication.

From the Back Cover
UNIX Systems Programming: Communication, Concurrency, and Threads by Kay A. Robbins and Steven Robbins
  • UNIX processes, files, and special files
  • Signals and timers
  • POSIX threads, semaphores, and IPC
  • TCP, UDP, multicast, and the Web
  • Features projects on Internet radio, server performance, timers, web caching, and shells

Learn how to design and implement reliable UNIX software whether you are using Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X, or another POSIX-based system.

This completely updated classic (originally titled Practical UNIX Programming) demonstrates how to design complex software to get the most from the UNIX operating system. UNIX Systems Programming provides a clear and easy-to-understand introduction to the essentials of UNIX programming. Starting with short code snippets that illustrate how to use system calls, Robbins and Robbins move quickly to hands-on projects that help readers expand their skill levels.

This practical guide thoroughly explores communication, concurrency,and multithreading. Known for its comprehensive and lucid explanationsof complicated topics such as signals and concurrency, the bookfeatures practical examples, exercises, reusable code, and simplifiedlibraries for use in network communication applications.

A self-contained reference that relies on the latest UNIX standards,UNIX Systems Programming provides thorough coverage of files, signals,semaphores, POSIX threads, and client-server communication. Thisedition features all-new chapters on the Web, UDP, and serverperformance. The sample material has been tested extensively in theclassroom.

If interested in UNIX systems programs then this is the one. Starting right from Process, threads, IPCs, pipes, everything it covers and the best thing about it is that it does not require any previous exposures.
Greetings! I am having a mid soul crisis. I am in my early 40's and looking to make a few friends online. I'm kind of a lonely lady and I'd adore to meet intelligent people. Yeap, I believe I am too old to do this kind of stuff, but anyways I will give it a shot. I am on a Mac and PC computers (in reality I have 2 of each; yes I am freaky :) I also like webdesigning, photoshop and adobe fireworks! Any suggestions, where to start? I wish you all a wonderful afternoon! Thanks in advance... and see you around
