Product Description

From the Back Cover

  • Secrets of programming for heterogeneous systems
  • Topic-by-topic walkthrough, filled with compare-and-contrast models
  • Straightforward, cookbook-style reference
  • Includes Solaris V2.6 and Red Hat Linux Version 6.1

Learn to program for Windows and UNIX the same way you use them: side by side Most organizations today rely on a hybrid combination of systems to meet all the needs of the enterprise. Programmers need to create parallel functionalities and interrelated tools to maximize the efficiency of these heterogeneous systems.

Programming the Win32 API and UNIX System Services goes subject by subject, comparing the functionality of Microsoft Windows 95, 98, NT, and 2000 with similar features in Solaris V2.6 and Red Hat Linux Version 6.1. The real-world examples and ongoing case studies illustrate the material for quick comprehension and application, while cookbook-style presentations make reference a breeze.

This book is ideal for users of one system who want to become familiar with the other, and of course it is critically important for anyone who must integrate the two. Programming the Win32 API and UNIX System Services is must reading for all serious professional enterprise programmers.

Format: Paperback
A quick scan reveals that the book contains selected material on unix and windows, with a chapter on windows security added as an afterthought. I would recommend getting separate unix and windows programming books; try authors such as jeffery Richter, Charles Petzold (Windows) and Richard Stevens (Unix) or the WROX Press "Beginning Linux Programming" for budding unix programmers.
