W. Richard Stevens and Stephen A. Rago's Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment, published by Pearson, is a comprehensive book for Computer Science students and professionals. This edition discusses the latest developments and also embellishes upon the standard for multithread programming and the final POSIX.1 standard. It additionally indulges all the new examples running into 10,000 lines of coding for Linux, Solaris, Free BSD, and the MAC OS X. The book provides the overview to the UNIX environment and then forays into implementations. It then branches out into the different processes that fall under the umbrella of the UNIX environment. Whether it is Files and Directories, Threads, Signals, System Data Files and Information, Process Information and Daemon processes, this book does more than just dispel doubts about the subject. The foreword to this edition is written by Dennis Ritchie, and it contains a UNIX themed Dilbert comic strip by Scott Adams.
