5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference material in Unix work enviornment 31 Dec 2002
By "shahid_younis" - Published on Amazon.com
I have been working in unix environment for last 8 years and this is an excellent reference for unix development and user environment. At my work my colleagues ask me about unix commands and tricks and of course I learned most of them by explaining it to them. "LINUX Programming Tools" covers what I need at work.
This book covers wide range, from C library functions, unix commands, debugger, make utility tricks, CVS and also your unix environment ( ENV ) i.e your shell explanation.
I would say, for beginner to intermediate user this book is a must and for advanced user this books is good reference source.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good book! 15 Sep 2008
By Kevin S. Richey - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this book as a required text for an intro Unix/Linux course. This is a very good and helpful book. Good examples of the commands and their output. I have taken similiar classes many years ago, this is a really good textbook.
