The Complete FreeBSD
This practical guidebook explains not only how to get a computer up and running with the FreeBSD operating system, but how to turn it into a highly functional and secure server that can host large numbers of users and disks, support remote access and provide key parts of the Inter
The UNIX haters Handbook
This book is for all people who are forced to use UNIX. It is a humorous book--pure entertainment--that maintains that UNIX is a computer virus with a user interface. It features letters from the thousands posted on the Internet's "UNIX-Haters" mailing list. It is not a computer handbook, tutorial, or reference. It is a self-help book that will let readers know they are not alone.
The Art of UNIX Programming
The Art of UNIX Programming poses the belief that understanding the unwritten UNIX engineering tradition and mastering its design patterns will help programmers of all stripes to become better programmers. This book attempts to capture the engineering wisdom and design philosophy of the UNIX, Linux, and Open Source software development community as it has evolved over the past three decades, and as it is applied today by the most experienced programmers. Eric Raymond offers the next generation of "hackers" the unique opportunity to learn the connection between UNIX philosophy and practice through careful case studies of the very best UNIX/Linux programs.

Be among the first to take advantage of a bold new generation of software engineering tools—Now available to readers by e-mail, free of charge! Over the past few years, researchers working at Bell Labs have developed a set of powerful new tools and software libraries that significantly streamline the job of software development by enhancing software reuse. This one-of-a-kind practical guide supplies you with all of those cutting-edge software engineering tools and libraries, and the all-star AT&T team that invented them shows you how to make full use of them in your own development projects. While some of them are still in prototype, all the tools and libraries described are ready to use and can easily be integrated into your work routine today. Tools and libraries available by e-mail, free of charge, exclusively to purchasers of this book. Written and edited by some of the brightest lights in software development today, including Glen Fowler, David Korn, David Rosenblum, Steven North, Y. Huang, and others. Describes a wide array of libraries, base tools, stand alone tools, and connected systems. Focuses on the four main categories of software architecture, reverse engineering, visualization, and process. Extremely practical—throughout the emphasis is on software reusability and the connectivity and "openness" of the tools.
