By W. Richard Stevens, Stephen A. Rago

PLEASE word: in all likelihood as a result of the huge measurement or excessive pagecount e-ink readers seem to have hassle rendering the pages of this booklet. it is going to open effectively on computer-based readers or phones/tablets (Android, iPad, etc). this can be most probably only a reminiscence factor as a result of ordinarily weaker on ereaders - the dossier supplied this is now not malformed or corrupt.

For greater than two decades, severe C programmers have depended on one publication for useful, in-depth wisdom of the programming interfaces that force the UNIX and Linux kernels: W. Richard Stevens’ complicated Programming within the UNIX® setting . Now, once more, Rich’s colleague Steve Rago has completely up-to-date this vintage paintings. the hot 3rd variation helps today’s prime systems, displays new technical advances and top practices, and aligns with model four of the only UNIX Specification.Steve rigorously keeps the spirit and strategy that experience made this e-book so worthwhile. development on Rich’s pioneering paintings, he starts off with documents, directories, and strategies, conscientiously laying the basis for extra complicated concepts, equivalent to sign dealing with and terminal I/O. He additionally completely covers threads and multithreaded programming, and socket-based IPC.

This version covers greater than seventy new interfaces, together with POSIX asynchronous I/O, spin locks, obstacles, and POSIX semaphores. such a lot out of date interfaces were got rid of, with the exception of a couple of which are ubiquitous. approximately all examples were demonstrated on 4 smooth systems: Solaris 10, Mac OS X model 10.6.8 (Darwin 10.8.0), FreeBSD 8.0, and Ubuntu model 12.04 (based on Linux 3.2).

As in prior variations, you’ll study via examples, together with greater than 10000 traces of downloadable, ISO C resource code. greater than 400 procedure calls and capabilities are validated with concise, whole courses that sincerely illustrate their utilization, arguments, and go back values. To tie jointly what you’ve realized, the e-book provides a number of chapter-length case experiences, every one reflecting modern environments.

Advanced Programming within the UNIX® setting has helped generations of programmers write code with extraordinary energy, functionality, and reliability. Now up to date for today’s structures, this 3rd version could be much more priceless.

UNIX Shell Scripting Interview Questions, Answers, and Explanations: UNIX Shell Certification Review

The final word Reference & studying consultant for the complex UNIX OperatorFluency with a UNIX Shell is essential for operating in the UNIX working procedure. preserving present, even if, could be a problem. With the UNIX Shell Scripting Interview advisor, you can be certain to be present. utilizing this ebook to organize for a role interview or brush up on a scripting programming language will relief any programmer in buying new and appropriate abilities and information.

Bash cookbook

The main to gaining knowledge of any Unix method, particularly Linux and Mac OS X, is an intensive wisdom of shell scripting. Scripting is how to harness and customise the facility of any Unix method, and it truly is an important ability for any Unix clients, together with procedure directors OS X builders. yet underneath this easy promise lies a treacherous ocean of adaptations in Unix instructions and criteria.

Sample text

Since this is a master server installation, you would answer yes, which allows the script to continue. This allows the script to set up the system configuration files to support a master server installation. The script also extracts and installs the NetBackup Java software to allow use of the Java interfaces. You are then prompted to supply a host name to store and manage the global device database: In order for device discovery and auto-configuration to work properly in a DataCenter environment, particularly where peripherals are connected to multiple servers, one host must serve as the repository for global device configuration information.

20: Volume Configuration Wizard: Updated volume database. 21. 21: Volume Configuration Wizard: Identify Cleaning Media. As you add volumes, either manually or via the wizard, you should ensure that the media type for the volumes matches the media type for the drives. Note that there are three different DLT designations, since a single library could contain a mix of DLT 4000, DLT 7000, and DLT 8000 drives. The different specifications for each of the DLT drive types are listed in Chapter 4. You must be able to differentiate between the volumes for each of these drives.

Speed of Networks If a significant amount of data resides on clients on a slow network, you should consider either installing a high-speed backup network or, if there is enough data, making one of these clients a media server. The other consideration is the amount of traffic the backup and recovery requirements will add to the existing networks. If possible, you should put the backup and recovery traffic on a dedicated network. If this is not possible, you might have to throttle large backup clients on slow networks or they will dominate the network.
