This book takes off where most Linux books stop, showing you how to make the most of the tools UNIX offers to program UNIX for real.
The first edition covers:
Programming in C, the main UNIX programming language
Client/Server and Network programming in the UNIX environment
HTML and using your Linux box as a CGI server
Rapid development tools: the shell and Tcl
X Windows and X programming with Tcl Tk and Java
A real-world CD database application is developed and extended throughout the book as new topics are covered, allowing you to see how the theory you've learnt can be applied in practice.
The book is unique in that it teaches UNIX programming in a simple and structured way, using Linux and its associated and freely available development tools as the main platform. Assuming familiarity with the UNIX environment and a basic knowledge of C, the book teaches you how to put together UNIX applications that make the most of your time, your OS and your machine's capabilities.
