The book for UNIX programming,
By A Customer
This review is from: Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment (APC) (Hardcover)
Tragically, mr. Stevens passed away 4 days ago.
However, I am certain that APUE will live on for a long time. I have been a professional UNIX programmer for several years, and no other book, no other course, no other person has taught me as much about UNIX programming as Steven and his book.
Every library function, every system call is meticously described. Especially valuable is the book's description on how each function works under various flavours of UNIX: Is this covered by POSIX, does it come from BSD or System 5?
APUE is the only book that has a permanent place on my desk. If you do UNIX programming, you should have it too.
Thank you, Richard. I wish though I had thanked you while you still lived.
