The Linux Programming Interface: A Linux and UNIX System Programming Handbook

• Use signs, clocks, and timers
• Create tactics and execute courses
• Write safe courses
• Write multithreaded courses utilizing POSIX threads
• construct and use shared libraries
• practice interprocess verbal exchange utilizing pipes, message queues, shared reminiscence, and semaphores
• Write community purposes with the sockets API

While The Linux Programming Interface covers a wealth of Linux-specific gains, together with epoll, inotify, and the /proc dossier approach, its emphasis on UNIX criteria (POSIX. 1-2001/SUSv3 and POSIX. 1-2008/SUSv4) makes it both worthwhile to programmers engaged on different UNIX platforms.

The Linux Programming Interface is the main complete single-volume paintings at the Linux and UNIX programming interface, and a publication that's destined to develop into a brand new classic.

Sample text

You do not need to PGP sign your email, and those business-card attachments just demonstrate that you really shouldn't be running OpenBSD. On a similar note, be sure to not use a long signature line. The "standard" for email signatures allows for four lines of text, no more. Long ASCII art signatures, even really nifty ones featuring the official OpenBSD Blowfish, are Right Out. Also, do not send your message to multiple mailing lists. org>. org>! Finally, use a good subject line. Many people who receive those thousands of email messages decide what messages to read based entirely on the subject line.

Memory (RAM) Memory is good, and the more memory you have the happier you will be. In fact, adding RAM will do more than anything else to accelerate your system. You should have at least 16MB of RAM at a bare minimum, and preferably at least 32. Mind you, if you can get a couple of gigs of RAM in your system, OpenBSD will take full advantage of it. Most weird crashes and unexplainable problems can be traced back to bad memory, so be certain that the memory you are using is good. Memory is the most likely failure point in an old machine.

In its audit of the OpenBSD source code tree, the OpenBSD team found any number of circumstances where people had used the library interface as the manual page said they should, but the manual page was incorrect! This created both potential and actual security problems. As such, a documentation error is considered a serious bug and treated as harshly as any other serious bug. Free In keeping with the spirit of the original BSD license, OpenBSD is free for use in any way by anyone. You can use it in any tool you like, on any computer, for any purpose.
