For generations, one name’s been synonymous with UNIX networking: W. Richard Stevens. Tragically, Stevens passed away in 1999. He’s missed by UNIX professionals worldwide. But, miraculously, his work lives on.
In UNIX Network Programming, Volume 1, Third Edition, Bill Fenner and Andrew Rudoff have worked hard to update Stevens’ guide to Sockets, while matching his legendary clarity, detail, readability, and runnable code. They’ve succeeded.
Now there’s a “Stevens” that covers the official IPv6 standard, the latest Posix specs, SCTP, key management sockets, and current systems (from Mac OS X and Solaris 9 to Linux on Intel). This one will be a classic, too. Bill Camarda
