A true gem!,
This review is from: The Linux Programming Interface: A Linux and UNIX System Programming Handbook (Hardcover)I purchased this book to help me solve one simple task: implement two timers on Linux. Our game engine has hi-res and lo-res timers. The man pages were not descriptive enough for me, so after some searching I found this book, and, oh boy, I am glad I bought it! I was able to find more information in 10 minutes reading the book than in 1 hour on the internet, and the quality of the text is excellent as well.
This book should a first stop for anyone trying to do some Linux programming.
(Hard cover and quality of the paper/print justifies the price.)
