Your UNIX/Linux: The Ultimate Guide, third edition, is written with both users and programmers in mind and is the ultimate UNIX/Linux text. Both pedagogical tool and exhaustive reference, it is well suited to any course that includes UNIX or Linux. A strong pedagogical framework sets it apart from similar texts and allows beginning students to gain a firm grasp of fundamental concepts, while chapters on advanced topics inspire the more experienced reader to move beyond the basics. Nearly a thousand exercises and self-test questions provide a way for students to test and reinforce their understanding of the material.
The new edition of Your UNIX/Linux includes :
A separate chapter on the essentials of C programming.
Coverage of the GNU debugger ( gdb ), which is a more effective, powerful debugger than dbx , the original UNIX debugger.
The popular Concurrent Version System (CVS), which is found on all Linux systems.
The bc calculator utility, an efficient computing tool for shell programmers.
Coverage of the pico editor, with the chapter on emacs relegated to an appendix.
A wealth of real-life examples.
Numerous learning aids such as Notes, Tips, Caution boxes, and a separate icon that highlights Linux references.
