Covering all the essential components of Unix/Linux, including process management, concurrent programming, timer and time service, file systems and network programming, this textbook emphasizes programming practice in the Unix/Linux environment. Emphasizing both theory and programming practice. Systems Programming in Unix/Linux contains many detailed working example programs with complete source code.
Systems programming is an indispensable part of Computer Science/Engineering education. After taking an introductory programming course, this book is meant to further knowledge by detailing how dynamic data structures are used in practice using programming exercises and programming projects.
Systems Programming in Unix/Linux provides a wide range of knowledge about computer system software and advanced programming skills, allowing readers to interface with operating system kernel, make efficient use of system resources and develop application software. It also prepares readers with the needed background to pursue advanced studies in Computer Science/Engineering, such as operating systems, embedded systems, database systems, data mining, artificial intelligence, computer networks, network security, distributed and parallel computing.
