* *Previous editions sold over 160,000 units! Second Edition (1998) sold over 53,000 in retail alone! *Updates coverage of programming standards, debugging techniques, and covers Operating Systems including Red Hat 9, Solaris 9, HP-UX, Free BSD 4.8/5.0, AIX 5.x, and Mac OS X. *Bill Fenner (AT/T Labs) and Andrew Rudoff (SUN) carry on the tradition of this great work.

This book's innovative approach helps readers at all levels to truly understand how TCP/IP really works. Rather than just describing what the RFCs say the protocol suite should do, TCP/IP Illustrated uses a popular diagnostic tool so you can actually watch the protocols in action. By forcing certain conditions to occur (connection establishment, timeout and retransmission, fragmentation, etc.) and watching the results, Rich Stevens provides insight into how the protocols work, and why certain design decisions were made. Written in his well-known style with lots of examples, Stevens shows how current, popular TCP/IP implementations operate (SunOS 4.1.3, Solaris 2.2, System V Release 4, BSD/386, AIX 3.2.2, and 4.4 BSD), and relates these real-world implementations to the RFC standards.

Threads are the key to faster, more efficient, and easier-to-maintain operating systems. Butenhof, a recognized authority on POSIX threads, tells how to use Pthreads in the real world, making efficient and portable applications. A unique feature of the book is the many examples which consist of simple instructive programs. The code is expansive and well-annotated. Key chapters are devoted to advanced threaded programming, real code (including read-write locks), and hints to avoid bad code and performance problems. Programming in POSIX Threads provides a solid general understanding of threaded programming models, concurrency, synchronization, and scheduling--need to know information for learning to think in terms of threaded concepts.
The Linux Programming Interface is the definitive guide to the Linux and UNIX programming interface—the interface employed by nearly every application that runs on a Linux or UNIX system. In this authoritative work, Linux programming expert Michael Kerrisk provides detailed descriptions of the system calls and library functions that you need in order to master the craft of system programming, and accompanies his explanations with clear, complete example programs. You'll find descriptions of over 500 system calls and library functions, and more than 200 example programs, 88 tables, and 115 diagrams. You'll learn how to: * Read and write files efficiently * Use signals, clocks, and timers * Create processes and execute programs * Write secure programs * Write multithreaded programs using POSIX threads * Build and use shared libraries * Perform interprocess communication using pipes, message queues, shared memory, and semaphores * Write network applications with the sockets API While The Linux Programming Interface covers a wealth of Linux-specific features, including epoll, inotify, and the /proc file system, its emphasis on UNIX standards (POSIX.1-2001/SUSv3 and POSIX.1-2008/SUSv4) makes it equally valuable to programmers working on other UNIX platforms. The Linux Programming Interface is the most comprehensive single-volume work on the Linux and UNIX programming interface, and a book that's destined to become a new classic.
