The Design of the Unix Operating System
- Maurice J. Bach
- Prentice Hall
- ISBN: 0-13-201799-7
This is another book that is getting old, but at least it's
focus is System V Unix, so it still has a lot of value.
Bach writes from a programmer's perspective, so anyone doing
programming on modern Unix systems should have this as beginning
material (I recommend Stevens "Advanced Programming in the Unix
Environment" for the gritty details).
Bach ends each chapter with a dozen or more exercises that ask
questions and pose scenarios designed to test your understanding of
the material covered. Unfortunately, there is no appendix that
discusses reasonable answers to those exercises, so you are on your
Order (or just read more about) Design of the Unix Operating System from Amazon.com
