Book Description

Any program worth its salt uses operating system services. Even a simple program, if practical, reads input and produces output. And, most applications have more complex needs. They need to find out the time, use the network, or start and communicate with other processes. Systems programming really means nothing more than writing software that uses these operating system services.

This book gives you the nitty-gritty details on how UNIX interacts with applications. If you're writing an application from scratch, or if you're porting an application to any System V Release 4 (SVR4) platform, you need this book. The first part of the book presents simple functions and concepts supported by numerous code fragment examples and short demonstration programs. These examples become building blocks for the application program examples that appear later in the book to illustrate more advanced, complex functions.
