    all the linux

    Fusco gathers into one easy to read book the many open source tools available under linux. Cumulatively written by hundreds (if not thousands) of contributors. You might pause a moment when reading the text, to reflect on the amazing amount of code that is freely available under linux. The tools are meant for two types of readers. The system administrator. The programmer. For the sysadmin, there are tools for install packages. Very practical, since updated packages often have bug fixes or new functionalities. This includes rpm, which is used by Red Hat, Suse and other linux distributions. But dpkg is also explained. This is used by Debian and Ubuntu. For the programmer, tools include ways to share memory between processes, as well as communicating between them via semaphores or message queues. The book reflects a general approach taken by Fusco. Tools are described across the popular linux distributions. The book can be used by you, regardless of which distribution you favour. There is a stylistic difference between the material in the book and a corresponding text on Microsoft's offerings. The latter often has a rich graphical framework, like Visual Studio. In contrast, significant portions of this book refer to tools used at the command line. Reflecting linux's heritage in unix.
