Advanced Linux Programming brings the success of Code Sourcery, LLC to paper. Anyone who works with Linux regularly or who is looking to start working with Linux, knows who this company is and they rely on them for solutions. Mark and Alex bring to their readers the know-how they've gained over the years. The book is divided into two parts. The first covers generic UNIX system services, but with a particular eye towards Linux specific information. This portion of the book will be of use even to advanced programmers who have worked with other Linux systems since it will cover Linux specific details and differences. For programmers without UNIX experience, it will be even more valuable. The second section covers material that is entirely Linux specific. These are truly advanced topics, and are the techniques that the gurus use to build great applications. This book is written for Linux programmers who are reasonably skilled in the C programming language and who are in need of a book that covers the Linux C library (glibc). The Web site includes all the code developed in the book and is a source of communication for readers of the book to speak directly to the authors.
