Every Unix user needs a reliable, comprehensive reference -- and a great tutorial on the command line tools that matter most. Now Mac OS X Unix users have both.
Mark Sobell’s Unix references are everything man pages aren’t: insightful, clear, and full of useful examples. Now, with help from Peter Seebach, he’s brought his singular expertise to OS X.
They cover all the most important “generic” Unix tools: vim and emacs, Bourne and tc shells, awk, sed, and some 90 system commands. But there’s plenty of OS X-specific coverage, too. Mac-only utilities (plutil, ditto, diskutil, GetFileInfo, SetFile, and so forth). Forty pages on the OS X filesystem. Mac-specific administration coverage (desktop and OS X Server). C programming from the Mac developer’s perspective.
If you use Macs, why settle for a generic Unix guide when you can have this? Bill Camarda, from the February 2006 Read Only
