“Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment”, by W. Richard. Stevens, Stephen A. Rago (3rd Edition). Grading: course participation. UniForum Monthly"Numerous readers recommended Advanced Programming in the UNIX® Environment by W. Richard Stevens (Addison-Wesley), and I'm glad.

These are best treated in a text devoted to real-time programming. One such book appears in the bibliography. I've updated the case studies in the last chapters to cover more relevant real-world examples. For example, few systems these days are connected to a PostScript printer via a serial or parallel port.

Most PostScript printers today are accessed via a network, so I've changed the case study that deals with PostScript printer communication to take this into account.

Stevens W.R. Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment + source code

The chapter on modem communication is less relevant these days. So that the original material is not lost, however, it is available on the book's Web site in two formats: PostScript http: The source code for the examples shown in this book is also available at www.

Most of the examples have been run on four platforms: Stephen A. Rago Warren, New Jersey April sar apuebook. Like most operating systems, Unix provides numerous services to the programs that are running -- open a file, read a file, start a new program, allocate a region of memory, get the current time-of-day, and so on.

This has been termed the system call interface. Additionally, the standard C library provides numerous functions that are used by almost every C program format a variable's value for output, compare two strings, etc. The system call interface and the library routines have traditionally been described in Sections 2 and 3 of the Unix Programmer 's Manual.

This book is not a duplication of these sections. Examples and rationale are missing from the Unix Programmer 's Manual, and that's what this book provides. Unix Standards The proliferation of different versions of Unix during the s has been tempered by the various international standards that were started during the late s.

This book also describes these standards. But instead of just describing the standards by themselves, we describe them in relation to popular implementations of the standards -- System V Release 4 and the forthcoming 4.

This provides a real-world description, which is often lacking from the standard itself and from books that describe only the standard. An overview and introduction to basic Unix programming concepts and terminology Chapter 1 , with a discussion of the various Unix standardization efforts and different Unix implementations Chapter 2. A reading familiarity with C would be beneficial as would some experience using Unix. No prior programming experience with Unix is assumed. This text is intended for programmers familiar with Unix and programmers familiar with some other operating system who wish to learn the details of the services provided by most Unix systems.

Examples in the Text This book contains many examples--approximately 10, lines of source code. All the examples are in the C programming language. You should have a copy of the Unix Programmer's Manual for your system handy while reading this book, since reference is made to it for some of the more esoteric and implementation-dependent features.

Almost every function and system call is demonstrated with a small, complete program. This lets us see the arguments and return values and is often easier to comprehend than the use of the function in a much larger program. But since some of the small programs are contrived examples, a few bigger examples are also included Chapters 16, 17, 18, and These larger examples demonstrate the programming techniques in larger, real-world examples.

Systems Used to Test the Examples Unfortunately all operating systems are moving targets. Unix is no exception. The following diagram shows the recent evolution of the various versions of System V and 4.

We'll have more to say about these different standards and the various versions of Unix in Sections 2. In this text we use the term 4. At the time of this writing, 4. Nevertheless a simple name was needed to refer to this system and 4. UHC , on an Intel processor. Numerous timing tests are provided in the text and the systems used for the test are identified.

Book details Author: Richard Stevens Pages: Addison Wesley Language: English ISBN The new edition has incorporated changes from the version.

Chapters on threads and thread control have been added. Some material has been omitted to reflect changes in common hardware. For example, the "Modem Dialer" example from the first edition has been removed, and "Communicating with a PostScript Printer" which focused on serial and parallel communication has been replaced with "Communicating with a Network Printer".

When delving into the text, it's apparent that Rago has done a painstaking job of reworking the text to reflect the changes over the past 13 years. These tables compare the differences among the four platforms he used in writing this edition, making this text rather valuable for those trying to support multiple offerings. The follow-up chapter is on thread control, dealing with the specifics of synchronization, reentrancy, and thread interaction with process-oriented system calls.Rago Warren, New Jersey April sar apuebook.

He also mentions many of the pitfalls to look out for when programming across different UNIX system implementations and points out how to avoid these pitfalls using relevant standards such as POSIX Other Data Files. Throughout the book, I've updated interfaces that have changed from the ongoing efforts in standards organizations. Richard Stevens Addison-Wesley , and I'm glad they did; I hadn't even heard of this book, and it's been out since Interprocess Communication.

I hope you find this revision equally useful.
