Meet the Author

Arthur Griffith (Homer, Alaska). Arthur has been a full-time writer since 1997. From 1977 through 1997, he worked as a computer consultant and a system-level programmer. Arthur's first introduction to UNIX was in 1985 when he installed a BSD system on a DEC 750. This was followed by a contract to develop a specialized network communications protocol to transmit encrypted data over a WAN using SCO Xenix. He has also done extensive development work with HP-UX software and Sun's Solaris and Motif. Arthur has authored nine books, six of them for HMI. His titles include: KDE Programming Bible (HMI; 2000); GNOME/GTK+ Programming Bible (HMI, 2000); COBOL For Dummies (HMI, 1997); Java Master Reference (HMI, 1998); and Peter Norton's Complete Guide to Linux (Sams, 1999).
