Overview

A practical, hands-on guide to driver design and development. Writing UNIX Device Drivers in C contains all the information you need to design and build UNIX device drivers. Adams and Tondo introduce the concept that device drivers are the implementation of an abstract software architecture and present a template-based development process that reduces the drudgery of implementing and debugging. This approach shortens development time and allows you to focus on the problem the device driver is designed to solve.

A detailed presentation of UNIX device driver architectures, this book offers practical template-based implementation methodology, functional tools and sample device drivers. The book addresses the SCO UNIX system V, release 3.2 SCSI adapter implementation using a standard parallel port interface, as well as multiprocessor implementations.
