A great book, lots of examples. My favorite was the battleship game. Like I said in the one line summary, you have to know C. I reccomend shildts(sp?) book, "Teach yourself C". This is not a in 24 hours book, but still good.

This book should have been called Unix GNU programming in C! 31 Aug. 2001
By Martin Stadtler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have looked for a book like this for quite some time. Every Linux Programming book I have seen so far tries to give me the whole kitchen sink. They cover databases to scripting to GUI. Thats exactly not what I want. I tend not to look at the 24hrs book's as they usually don't cover enough ground. Not this one! Warren Gay has done a superb job of covering the essential programming steps required to do succesful GNU/Unix programming (I used Solaris not Linux). If you are already familier with the C language then this is the road map to doing it right, the unix way. Revision control, makefiles, debugging, forks, pipes and unix permissions to name a few of the subjects are covered in a clear and easly understood method. Granted there are other books that cover C more in depth, then again I already have them. Kudos to you Warren Gay, I can hardly wait for your next one.

Perhaps, you need... 8 May 2002
By Loc Le - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you new to Linux, perhaps you need other books to check for small some details which are not mentioned by the author. For example, if you want to use "core dump" at beginning of the book, you need to edit the .bashrc file first because by defaut setup it will not "dump" at all. Also, when you reach to hour 5, you should be careful to use tab instead of spaces in the beginning of the lines containing with commands. I can find the answers for all of this in "Running Linux" by Matt Welsh. Good luck!

C programmer power-ups 14 Oct. 2000
By John Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I consider myself to be a fluent C programmer. This book introduced many things to me that can make my Linux programs more powerful. From beginning topics such as Makefiles and Environments to more advanced topics such as Pipes, Forks, Shared Memory, Dynamic Libraries and Signal handling, I really got a lot out of this book.

How to be a Unix programmer 8 Mar. 2005
By iqi616 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is perfect for anyone who's programmed on Windows or other non-Unix platforms. This is all stuff that's basic to Unix programmers but a mystery to everyone else. This book breaks through the barrier. If you want to get on the same footing as all those strange people that prefer command-line interfaces, this is a great place to start.
