Overview

The wide range of applications available in GNU/Linux includes not only pure applications, but also tools and utilities for the GNU/Linux environment. GNU/Linux Application Programming takes a holistic approach to teaching developers the ins-and-outs of GNU/Linux programming using APIs, tools, communication, and scripting. Covering a variety of topics related to GNU/Linux application programming, the book is split into six parts: The GNU/Linux Operating System, GNU Tools, Application Development, Advanced Topics (including communication and synchronization and distributed computing), Debugging GNU/Linux Applications, and Scripting.
 
The book introduces programmers to the environment from the lowest layers (kernel, device drivers, modules) to the user layer (applications, libraries, tools), using an evolutionary approach that builds on knowledge to cover the more complex aspects of the operating system. Through a readable, code-based style developers will learn about the relevant topics of file handling, pipes and sockets, processes and POSIX threads, inter-process communication, and other development topics. After working through the text, they'll have the knowledge base and skills to begin developing applications in the GNU/Linux environment.
 
Key Features!
* Focuses on GNU/ Linux, not only the Linux APIs, but the GNU tools and libraries that make Linux programming possible
* Covers a variety of useful APIs for process management, shared memory, message queues, semaphores, POSIX, file handling, sockets, and more
* Provides detailed discussion of scripting and integration with the GNU/Linux environment with bash, including useful shell commands
* Introduces developers to GNU/Linux from the lowest layers (kernel, device drivers, modules) to the user layer (applications, libraries, tools)
* Explores the multiprocess and multithreaded programming APIs, including debugging applications with the GNU Debugger
* Includes a CD-ROM with code snippets for all the detailed APIs and the figures from the book
 
On the CD!
* SOURCE CODE - Includes code examples for all the detailed APIs from the book
* FIGURES - Includes all of the figures from the book
 
SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
PC: Linux with a 2.4 or 2.6 Kernel (tested with Red Hat and Fedora); Pentium I Processor or greater; CD-ROM drive; Hard drive; 256MB of RAM; 1MB of hard drive space for the code examples.
