Reviews of : The Linux Programming Interface by Michael Kerrisk PDF Book
Inside this Book – Great book. I’m halfway through and I learnt a lot of stuff and cleared my understanding of UNIX/Linux system programming. I’ve decided to read it to learn about real UNIX programming, system calls, how to implement socket servers, threading and processes in UNIX, signals and other low-level stuff. Although I am not a system UNIX programmer (I use Linux to run Java servers), it is very interesting to read and understand what layers of pretty cool (primarily in performance perspective) stuff are buried under the depths of abstractions JVM/Java and other languages, servers, libraries hide.
Inside this book –The Linux Programming Interface PDF Book by Michael Kerrisk – This is an absolutely stellar compilation of knowledge, combining the reusable utility of a reference with historical justification for the idiosyncrasies of various UNIX systems today. This helped close the loop on a lot of fundamental concepts that I had learned ad hoc through experience but had never “read the manual” on, and as a result clarified a lot of my understanding. I was able to grok this with a limited knowledge of C (I learned it in university, but never used it professionally). Kerrisk does an excellent job of walking you through the concepts despite such knowledge however. The example C programs add additional clarity. If you do any sort of development work on UNIX systems, this book is a must if you want to really understand what is going on. I now feel much more comfortable diving into code for tools like SSH or Bash, where in the past these would have been relatively inaccessible given the conceptual understanding I was lacking.
