    Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment, 3rd Edition []  2020-1-8 19:45

    I have been teaching a course in advanced Unix based on this text for two years (four times) and I am very satisfied with it. It is thorough, clearly explaining the main features while drawing attention to possible issues and pitfalls. It is a bit hefty, but one need not cover it all in a course. I choose chapters 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 10, 15, 16, 18, 14, 11, 12 and then go off to present shell scripting, which is not covered in this book.

    Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment, 3rd Edition []  2020-1-8 19:45

    A classic! Nicely updated. I bought it for the C style used in the examples. Fortunately, they are readable on the iPad Air. In some titles the examples are just 8x8 bit maps, and worthless. It's a nice simple intro into more advanced programming. Beware, the first chapter is mostly a review of Unix history and standards, which I found almost lethally boring, maybe others search it interesting. I consult this edition when revisiting an zone I don't use every day, knowing It will give me a solid base to elaborate on.

    Read this - cover to cover. This is simply the best book on UNIX out there. If you use Linux, pair this with 'The Linux Programming Interface' by Michael Kerrisk. My only gripe with this book is that they've dropped the hardcover from this edition and now it comes only in a soft-cover version. For a book like this, having a sturdy hardcover is a must because a softcover will just wear every time you pull this book out until the pages are dog-eared.

    Only required it for school. The content is outdated and only amazing to learn the basics. A lot of examples no longer compile or work. For this the book should be updated to at least work on the modern Linux/unix distributions.

    Honestly I was annoyed that the professor created us his book; however, there is a ton of amazing information in here. Professor Molay is an expert, no doubt. Unfortunately, the examples are in desperate need of adherence to best practices. If you turned in something resembling the example code into your professor he would fail you.

    The beauty of this book is Prof. Molay's perfect and methodical explanations that elucidate what would otherwise (in other books) seem exceedingly complex and full of arcane details. The pedagogical style of this book is simply quite extraordinary --something that is not found in most programming books. This book, along with Stevens, provide a much deeper understanding of Unix/Linux than what can be acquired by learning by and is book is, of course, best understood in Prof. Molay's Harvard cscie-28 class --yet the stylistic differences between C in 2002 can be a bit disconcerting, till, of course, you learn more C thanks to this book.

    This University text introduces system programming via Unix/Linux in a method that stimulates students to ask "How is that done?" and then create it happen. The special approach is good. Far too a lot of would-be programmers are handed a recipe and expect the same on the job. Those who ask "How is that done?" will later ask "How can this be done?" without the example program to inspire them. It's a amazing method to approach teaching students system programming at the novice level.

I was relieved when Molay's book arrived in the mail today. I was relieved that the book exceeded my expectations. If you can't afford Harvard, don't worry--the course is all here.

    The Linux Programming Interface: A Linux and UNIX System Programming Handbook []  2020-1-31 3:48

    This is without a doubt the best written technical book I've ever read; it's honestly hard to believe only one person wrote and organized it. In an era where you can often obtain a better respond from a highly voted Stack Overflow question than you'll search most books, TLPI is 100% an e material is presented in such a fashion that beautiful much anyone with a working knowledge of C can pick it up, sit down, and understand any of its topics. Kerrisk often opens with a code-light "overview" chapter on the more dense subjects (e.g. networking), and his descriptions are as elegant and well-written as anything you'll search on SO or by googling. He then walks through the subject with an in-depth discussion of the different APIs and perfect example code, crucially often also mentioning now-outdated approaches you will still see pop up, so the reader isn't clueless when encountering pre-POSIX code in true 's the rare book indeed which can serve as both an excellently written (and illustrated!) introduction and reference. If you're a student looking to obtain into linux systems programming (or been assigned some less than high quality reading), pick this up. if you're a programmer of the type who often finds himself typing "man 2 somethingsomething...", absolutely 100% pick this up. The fact that the author is also in charge of the man pages project for linux shows in his encyclopedic knowledge--what makes this book so outstanding is his ability to show that knowledge in an easily-digested form with tight, well-written s, it's massive. But trust me, there isn't a page wasted in here--even if you're experienced in the area, walking through each chapter and digesting Kerrisk's explanations will serve you well. And to any professors or teachers out there who are curious: yes, please use this as your textbook. As a grad student who hasn't been in CS for very long, I was extremely fortunate to be assigned this as a textbook for a systems programming class. Without this book, there's no method I couldn't have learned as much as I did in a fairly short period of time; more importantly, it created me come to appreciate and have fun systems programming. It combines the readability/working examples of the best Stack Overflow answers, the comprehensiveness of man pages, and logical progression for fresh learners in one amazingly tight (if not light) package.

    Technical books are not all useful. Especially today, when in a few clicks dozens of forums and articles may respond most e LPI is remarkably valuable because in 1500 pages it covers most system programming locations (more than 60) in Linux in a logical and evolutionary manner. Explanations are deep and lengthy. The author knows what he talks about, and doesn't take refuge in vagueness (many authors do when a subject is particularly difficult).The LPI is a useful book to have as a programmer, or anybody interested in [Linux] systems. Searching the book is a first step, the most important, when addressing a topic.An example of what I like from the book:in "Threads: further details" the author addresses a particular scenario where a fork() is called within a multithreaded process. He gives warnings and recommendations. Doing a fork() there is the kind of trap a lot of people may fall into, leading to race conditions and other very hard to debug issues that occur randomly.

    Go Systems Programming: Master Linux and Unix system level programming with Go []  2020-5-22 18:28

    The book starts with a rather obtuse and scattershot introduction to Go. Not enough to actually learn Go programming so it isn't a guide but it isn't terribly e book doesn't really begin until getting into File and processes and then it ends to quickly with a web applications section that seems tacked on. It isn't that any of it is particularly poor but if it is going to be a "Systems Programming" book then it should focus on systems programming and not programming basics of pointers, structs, installation, ver numbers and the like and swerve sharply later into setting up a web server with database back end.

    Just all around an perfect book. Amazing content, relevance, code examples and explanation. I read a lot of tech books and this one definitely stands out. Even if you wish to skip the C and just obtain a amazing understanding of Linux; this book if for you. I read through the book, read it again and now reference it. The code that is provided is simple to access as well. This book won't disappoint you if you wish to know more about Linux, C programming, Unix operating systems, and much more. One comment on the length of the book; it is long, but not long in that rambling on and on, there is just so much to talk about and he goes depth on so a lot of subjects. Some chapters may not be relevant and you can skip over them without having dependencies on other chapters.

    Super helpful book. If society crumbles, this book will give you firestarter for years to come, at a whopping 1500+ pages. In the meantime, it's full of helpful system calls, how they should be used, and plenty of specific examples of how to do so. Yes, all of this info is in man pages, but this has become my first stop for questions of "how do I do ___ in linux?" Very simple to read, a must-own for anybody doing system or low level programming.

    Go Systems Programming: Master Linux and Unix system level programming with Go []  2020-5-22 18:28

    I really like Go. I am replacing C with it in most of my choices. The fact that it comes "batteries includes" and that it has endured the latest 10 years helps. So I really required a book that would let me to view it more as a tool than just a is is such a book. This is a book where you already know some Go (i.e. you have read the guide that is available at ). But it is also a book that is not self-contained, in that if you do know know enough Go, you need to use your web browser a lot. For example to lookup more items about reflections. Or some other packages that obtain is clear that the author did not intend to write yet another introduction to Go. The target audience is people who armed with a terminal and an editor are more interested in tooling. Items that in the "old days" you would decide to write in C. Now here is a path to write them in Go. This is the amazing achievement of the book. You go through it section by section and if you have any significant systems programming experience with C, you feel the relevance: "I've done this in C before! So that's how you do it in Go". And it is not about C. Scripting in any of your language of choice can at times be done in Go also.If you do not have time pressure, the sections are little enough that you can work one or two of them per day. That would be a slow progress, but it would also be a 10 min per day learn Go, I would go through and introduction to the language (among the numerous ones available), then work this book and finally hold the GoPL at bay for ere have been typos which I have submitted to the author of the book and I read it on O'Reilly's Safari

    The Linux operating system, and it's kernel more specifically, has always been this blackbox of mystery to me and thankfully this book has removed much of that. The different subjects of system programming are broken up very nicely in the book. Each chapter is primarily broken up into three sections: An introduction into the subject. An overview of the basic APIs provided by the Kernel to achieve the desired task. And an simple to understand working example of these APIs in action written in C. I now have a better idea of the Linux programming interface and it doesn't feel like much of a mystery to me anymore. I finally realize how central the kernel is to the operations of the OS. I feel I can leverage this knowledge to create me a much more productive contributor to my development team.I suggest this book to anyone who is unfamiliar with the Linux operating system and its kernel. A working understand of C is strongly suggested since the examples are all done in it. The C examples are not advanced, so you don't need to be an expert. Just teach yourself the basics of C programming, including working with pointers, and you should be amazing enough to follow through them. I also found this book to often be a better resource to figuring out common tasks in system programming vs searching the anks Kerrisk for putting together this book and the contributions you created to the man pages. It certainly is a fresh classic.

    This book is excellent, a complete UNIX/LINUX system programming reference! Allow me preface this review with the comment that I use PC-BSD 10.1.1 p20, Solaris 11.2, and Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS as my platforms. I have only one suggestion for those programmers that wish to use this book on systems other than LINUX.If you use the create file at the top level directory of the book or dist source code, it is successful in compiling all of the source in each chapter on a LINUX system at one time. That's what happened on my Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS, as of the tarball available at the book www service on 4/24/15. But trying to compile the source on both PC-BSD 10.1.1 p20 or Solaris 11.2 proved to be an insurmountable task for me. If you follow the author's perfect instructions for compiling on systems other than LINUX, you may have better luck than l in all, a very complete SUSv4/ POSIX -compliant reference, and well organized too!Update 9/27/2015- Successfully compiled the source tarball on Ubuntu 15.04 using Way B in the ml file at the book website. Had to apt-get gcc on my server edition first. Then went to each sub-directory of interest and used create to compile. Beautiful!

    This book has some misinformation (blank identifier explanation is incorrect and never mentioned as the blank identifier), is poorly structured (returned errors in functions is glossed over on chapter 1 by assigning an error to _ and not mentioned again until chapter 3) and a number of grammatical errors that create it hard to obtain through.

    This book claims it is the single most comprehensive book about Linux and is destined to be a classic. After finishing the book I would agree. For 1400 pages the author beautifully explains how Linux kernel programming works. I did not message a single mistake the entire book and the writing flows elegantly with each sentence conveying valuable e author knows the material so well including the history, and can explain why a lot of design decisions were made. When a function call or a technique is outdated the author explains why it is no longer used, and what the fresh paradigm is.I found the sections on IPC (Inter-Process Communication) to be excellent. Every type of IPC is explained with multiple chapters for each in some cases. The trade-offs are examined in depth as to the best communication method.Certain sections used analogies well. On page 1155 stream sockets are explained and the author explains how this is like a telephone. Each step of setting up a socket is explained from a technical standpoint and how this would be represented as a true life e balance between practicality and theory was excellent. A surprising amount of C code is included in the book (Linux is written in C). The coding examples have comments and side notes when needed. This book assumes you know C at least reasonably is rare to search a book as complete, well written and detailed as this. This is a real modern classic and a masterpiece.

    I love this book. It is a amazing reference for all things Linux. I had this copy before, but gave it to a friend. I came back to repurchase it and was a small surprised it hadn't been updated to a fresh ver yet. But I guess there's no reason to fix something that ain't broken. I recommend this book to any Linux admin or anyone who is serious about learning the ins and outs of Linux programming.

    One star is "I hate it", and I don't hate this book, but also this book is not so good. It doesn't do anything well with respect to systems programming or with Go programming. The systems programming examples are trite and easy like the wc command written in Go. There were typos in the book. The book did not cover nor did the book's examples talk about the importance of stdout versus stderr and having amazing error codes and error messages and error handling which is 99% of systems programming. The book also cost over $50. I would recommend another book on the fundamentals of Go programming and then any generic book on systems programming.

    Simple begin but even tho the author included a lot of code and commands I had to google a lot in to follow along with the examples. Maybe his compile command does work but because the book's formatting is off, I had to google for it. Plus, the author omits saying in the text what the following commands will do so he missed his possibility to clarify things.

    /*** Name: Charles* Age: 23* Purchased: May, 2013*/Organization: [0] -> The book is divided into chapters. [1] -> Each chapter has multiple sections. [2] -> Each chapter ends with a summary. [3] -> At the very end of each chapter are exercises meant to reinforce what was learned in the is is by far one of the best computer science texts I own. I did not this book as a requirement for a class (though I am a student), but I did it for 'personal consumption' and to further my knowledge of programming and grow as a unix/linux systems programmer.I have read a lot of computer science books by a lot of various publishers and I have to admit I really have fun the books that I own that were printed by No Starch press. I was turned on to this book by an interest in C/C++ socket programming and systems programming in general. I have a background in web development and had been programming in C for about a year when I purchased this ere is something to learn for everyone in this book, regardless of how a lot of years or decades of experience you have. The book starts with a history of Unix, Linux, and standards, and then progresses into the amazing detail the inner workings of linux and of my largest disappointments with most other programming books is that the authors use poor analogies to explain how things work, or fail to explain how things work at all and only a shallow glimpse into the subject. Some authors seem to go back over their books adding stupid and unintelligent filler to test and create the book longer. This book is over 1500 pages and each page is jam packed with information. In fact, I'm sure there was info that was deemed 'not important' enough to create it into this book, and thus the book references how one can search more info on a topic.I have so a lot of amazing things to say about this book, I highly recommend it to anybody with an interest in linux systems programming. You will need an understanding of C programming to obtain through the book. If you are looking for a book on how to program in C, this is not the book. If you are a C programmer, or are learning C, and would like a book that shows you how to apply your programming knowledge to the linux and unix operating systems, this is a book for is is a book for system admins, network admins, hackers, teachers and professors, students (high school, college, or graduate), makers, computer scientists, is is one book that I know I will carry with me everywhere. Or I will multiple copies so that I don't have to lug around this heavy, 1500+ pg hardcover book. Definitely a book you wish at home, at the office, on the plain, in the car, in the bathroom, or anywhere else you can think of reading!This is the most well written programming book that I own!

    First, I'm surprised at the number of people complaining that this book isn't conducive to learning Go. What did you expect? It's positioned as a tour of Systems Programming in Go, not Learning Go!I gave it three stars because it's not nearly as low level as the description makes it out to be. The author completely ignores the syscall and x/sys packages, which are at the heart of what systems programming is! Instead we obtain lame primary socket tutorials. There's nothing here that can't be found in other primary go books.

    Go Systems Programming: Master Linux and Unix system level programming with Go []  2020-5-22 18:28

    This book is a must have on your library!Initially I had my reservations about Go and this book (as I am not a developer/programmer), but after the first few chapters I was completely overturned by it!The author, without wasting any time -this is a not a beginners book-, immediately jumps to the point and you can really begin writing Go code from the very first chapters. And this comes from a sysadmin who somehow was afraid to write any Go code only took a few chapters playing with the code examples to see that. The chapters were enlightening and while reading the book I had the feeling that it was written for someone like me. Overall, this is a book of amazing quality, that you will use it again as a reference in the future.

    This is a very nice book for those who know primary programming and they wish to learn systems programming but also for those who are programmers and they are interested in learning ere are a lot of examples that support the understanding of primary Go concepts and the method that things are done in Go. It also explains the basics of Unix and system programming in Unix.

    Learning the bash Shell: Unix Shell Programming (In a Nutshell (O'Reilly)) []  2020-1-31 3:43

    It feels so anachronistic to be learning the bash shell in 2009, but I wish to broaden my understanding of Linux and bash is a component part. For the beginner, like myself, this is an simple introduction. It begins with the purpose and nature of the shell, moves you into primary concepts of using the shell and then takes you into the more complex zone of shell programming. Unlike a number of "Learning" books from O'Reilly, this one is very well written for its target audience, which is beginners. The approach is gradual, in little chunks, with lots of explanation. This is not a reference or guide for Linux, per se. It is about the bash shell and the Linux commands encountered are incidental to that goal. (The book, actually, is a survivor of the UNIX era.) Because of the author's approach, picking up knowledge of the fundamentals of the bash shell is (thankfully) a fast process. The more advanced lessons on scripting are somewhat lost on me because I don't operate in a server environment and, as a result, don't have a true globe context for some of the examples. Some of the chapter exercises, however, are quite challenging and will hold me busy for a while. I am learning Linux and bash out of private curiosity, so I don't know how much of this newly acquired knowledge I will use on anything resembling a regular basis, but the cool thing is that the book is obviously useful as a reference for those like me who will probably stay close to the beginner level. Overall, a very nice method to learn the bash rry

    Oracle Shell Scripting: Linux and Unix Programming for Oracle (Oracle In-Focus) (Volume 26) []  2020-5-19 18:28

    My first impression of "Oracle Shell Scripting" was not a amazing one. After looking for the website for the scripts in the book I was frustrated. The first chapters seemed a small rudimentary. This book is not a learn how to script book. The first five chapters give a scripting refresher. If you have no experience with korn, or bash scripting this is not the book to begin with. If you have used Oracle on UNIX/Linux this books puts all those nuggets you have gathered over the years and some you have missed in one place. This book has scripts that you use in every day DBA work. This book with Oracle, sqlplus and UNIX/Linux scripting. I bought this book to support me transition from korn scripting in Solaris UNIX to bash scripting in Linux. I consider it worth the investment. Caution avoid the frustration of looking for the script website. It is not in the book. You have to email the author to obtain the site. There is not enough info on using scripting with Oracle App Server.

    Unix Network Programming, Volume 1: The Sockets Networking API (3rd Edition) []  2020-5-23 18:29

    The book is much the same as it was when it was first released, and that presents some problems for modern programmers. The first issue is that the book's code requires third party to make a header with your system specs in for certain applications to run. That particular proved to be an problem for me and resulted in a system restore of my e largest problem with the text is its reliance on a single, horrifying concoction called the "unp.h" header file and its associated c files. An necessary rule, especially in teaching material, is not to show more material than what is important to convey the intended lesson. In to understand how the simplest of the programs depicted in the book work, the student must climb an wonderful mountain of code in the form of the appendices. The book does nothing to support the student understand the thinking involved in the wrapper functions, which often call other wrapper functions or use other author-defined variables in the unp.h header. The afformentioned header and its associated files take up twelve pages in appendix D. That doesn't sound like much, but when one function's code is calling on another function that appears off the current page and so on, it becomes an r an expert that already knows the ins and outs of Network Programming in C, this is an acceptable resource. As a tutorial to learning C network programming from the ground up, it is unfortunately less user friendly than it at first appears. However, if the student somehow overcomes the wall that is appendix D, things become smoother. My final verdict: A useful resource that will prove frustrating for beginners.

    First off, the composite authors name is Lapin, not Laping.I used this book back around 1990 to develop a huge suite. The first 5 chapters are an perfect intro to portable C coding. We used the beginning chapters to design and develop our common platform headers, libraries and Create system. We did not take their examples unchanged, but used them as starting points for a our needs, which was a somewhat more comprehensive system. My squad gives the book for helping us obtain us some of our 10x improvements. Still have not seen the likes of this book even today, in terms of the quality of data to e latest half of the book is a summary of various API calls and /bin functions available on various Unixes of the day. Interesting now, from a historical perspective.

    Shell Scripting: Learn Linux Shell Programming Step-By-Step (Bash Scripting, UNIX) []  2020-2-2 16:45

    I rarely write negative reviews, but this book deserves my highest scorn. Full of typos, it was clearly written by a person to whom English is a not good second language. One example: "Let's test to learn some fresh commands and see what will be happened" (Page 41). The editing is just as bad. Content wise, the book in paperback form is only 137 pages, yet doesn't obtain around to actual scripting until page 88. so over 60% of the book is just command basics like ls and cp that look like they were pulled directly from the man pages. 137 pages actually sounds like a reasonable amount, but the formatting is double (triple?) spaced, not to mention difficult to parse due to the lack of differentiation between commands and comments. As another example, there are a total of 15 pages dedicated to listing the output of the author's du command. Filler much?And don't obtain me started on the glowing reviews. All submitted within a short time period, all "Verified purchasers" of the Kindle edition, there is no method they could have actually read any part of this book and given it more than two stars. At best. Do not waste your time or money.

    The bash shell is now the most common and featureful command shell in the Unix world. It's full capability certainly isn't obvious to a beginner facing a command prompt, but is well worth exploring. This book is a amazing put for the novice to start. The first chapter addresses the most fundamental question: just what is a command shell?The ideal reader already knows at least the names of the emacs and vi editors. That much helps understand the a lot of features and two distinct feature sets available for command line editing. I consider fancy command line editing over-rated for fluent typists, but it's there in the second chapter for all who wish it and anyone can benefit from at least a small knowledge of it. After that successive chapters pull the reader deeper into the bash feature set: aliases and shell variables, scripting and shell programming, and debugging when the shell programs or functions go nce this book is aimed at the novice, Newham and Rosenblatt skip lightly over a few of the more advanced subjects. For example, exceptions and trap handling obtain only cursory treatment, since they obtain into deep weirdness very fast. The authors are honest about this shallow treatment, though, and give enough info for a novice to recognize the basics and look them up in more advanced is is nicely organized for the self-taught student. As a result, it's not laid out as a programmer's reference manual - anyone who wants that kind of reference just isn't looking at the right book. For its intended reader, though, it's a amazing book. It gets readers off to a quick start, and lets them decide just how much they wish to bite off at a time. I recommned it very highly.//wiredweird

I was pleasantly surprised to search what a wide range of scripting hints and techniques this manual provides. I was impressed by the fact that the author didn't just describe HOW to do something, but also explained WHY a particular approach was taken. I also like the fact that the scripts given aren't just contrived samples, but are practical and useful as given. This info will definitely support simplify some of my routine tasks and provide me with timely info about the environments and systems I work with. The author also pointed out how to go beyond what was provided in the book by suggesting ways the examples might be modified. I've already taken advantage of that with a script I helped one of my clients develop.

    As the series editor for this book, I recognize the need for Oracle specialists to "think outside the box", and a amazing command of UNIX and Linux command syntax and scripting is critical for the effective management of complex server environments. As a working Oracle professional I'm always using Oracle shell scripts to perform external management tasks, and it is very difficult for beginners to grasp the cryptic syntax and language structures of the UNIX shell command languages.During the production of this book I insisted that each and every subject be clear and understandable, with a focus on providing a clear understanding of the functionality of Oracle scripting. I think that Jon and Zach met their mandate, and I'm especially happy with the code depot of working Oracle scripts.

    I bought this book when i was learning the very basics of UNIX scripting. It really helped me a lot, now after doing unix scripting for almost 6 months, i really feel that this book is just amazing enough for the people who wanna begin the unix scripting, but experts may not search anything fresh in member, this book is for Oracle DBA's, and not for unix administrators. It probably has almost everything that a DBA would typically need. After another few months, i would be purchasing some other book on advanced unix scripting, but for the time being i am hapy with it.

    A so-so book. I bought it because I thought the author is Don Burleson. The book covers some very primary unix/dba everyday routines which I think a lot of companies already have those scripts/tricks in place. At least majority of the scripts are old school to me. If someone already been working on Oracle database administration in unix environment for a year or so, you don't need this book. Unix for Oracle DBA's from O'Reilly (authored by Don Burleson) does a better job and much lighter weight too. I just glanced through it couple times from cover to cover and it has been sitting straight on my bookshelf since then. The true disappointment was the price. It doesn't worth more than $30.

    This book has helped me impress my colleagues and boss..I originally browsed through it at Border's (and found myself sitting on the ground with a notepad scrambling to copy as much as possible)..of course, then I realized I had to have it, so I bought it online..I knew the publisher was a trustworthy source because I'm always using Don Burleson's DBA hints online.. this author's approach is easy-to-follow and concise; yet it's a thorough tutorial that is like a catalyst for your own creativity...it has created me look forward to extracting the power of the 's a lot better than parsing through thick UNIX encyclopedias or cycling through fragmented online material..as an OCP 10g/9i DBA, I still feel like there are not enough practical day-to-day tutorials like this one for junior/mid/senior-level administrators, since over half our work is directly/indirectly connected to the shell.

    Unix Network Programming, Volume 1: The Sockets Networking API (3rd Edition) []  2020-5-23 18:29

    I bought this book for work. It left me with a amazing understanding of Multicast and Raw Sockets, the two topics I was mostly interested in.

    Hands-On System Programming with C++: Build performant and concurrent Unix and Linux systems with C++17 []  2020-2-1 11:58

    Hands-On System Programming with C++ is a book I want I had when I was first tasked with developing high-performance C++ applications for Linux. It is a very nice introduction to a modern ver of C++, the Linux developer environment, and the Linux operating system in general. The book requires a primary understanding of programming concepts and of C/C++ but then examines these primary concepts from a system's perspective that regular programmers would not need to know the info of because it "just works".How exactly do integers and floating points look in memory? How is memory allocated on the stack and heap with C++? What happens during a system call? What happens during a function call?This book provides a amazing overview of concepts such as these. Gaining a deeper understanding is essential to the design of high-performance applications but also for anyone interested in security. A deep, system-level understanding of applications and operating systems is key to effective reverse engineering, memory forensics, and to learn how exploits work.I can highly recommend this book to anyone just starting out, but it's also unbelievable as a refresher for more seasoned developers.

    PLC Programming Using RSLogix 500: A Practical Guide to Ladder Logic and the RSLogix 500 Environment []  2019-12-23 20:8

    Me and my nephew both love how Nathan Clark explains everything in a straightforward, coherent, and logical manner that is very simple to understand. He also provides screenshots. Every single chapter of the book includes clear instructions and screenshots which will create things extremely simple for you even though you're a beginner.

    Hands-On System Programming with C++: Build performant and concurrent Unix and Linux systems with C++17 []  2020-2-1 11:58

    This book brings together a lot of small info which would truly strengthen foundations of any enterprise application developer. One errata — in one of the chapters, author says he talked about ELF in chapter 2, but he explains it later. So read forward and then read back. Gem of a book.

    PLC Programming Using RSLogix 500: A Practical Guide to Ladder Logic and the RSLogix 500 Environment []  2019-12-23 20:8

    This is yet another book in Nathan Clark’s perfect series of programming books. As I have noted in my reviews of other Clark’s books, he has the ability to take a complex topic and create it simple to understand. That ability continues to present in this book on PLC programming using Ladder Logic and the RSLogix 500 environment. It covers all the key elements of this topic, from basics to more granulated subjects like Memory Addressing, Timers Counters, and Integers, and then illustrates the concepts by providing practical examples. Overall, PLC Programming Using RSLogix 500: A Practical Tutorial to Ladder Logic and the RSLogix 500 Environment is an outstanding tutorial for students who wish to learn about this subject on their own or for instructors who are looking for a suitable textbook.

    PLC Programming Using RSLogix 500: A Practical Guide to Ladder Logic and the RSLogix 500 Environment []  2019-12-23 20:8

    These have always been very informative and simple to use guides, which I've appreciated above all else when it comes to my software. I'm not a person who does a lot of programming, so I really liked that the book goes through the steps, explains the problems I can run into, and gives plenty of examples. As an FYI, the book covers programming principles, interfacing with RS-Logix, Basics of Ladder Logic Programming, Memory Addressing, RSLogix Program Instructions, Timers and Counters and Integers, Math Functions, Peripheral Devices, and Practical Examples, which is the part I really appreciated the most.
