C is what the world is breathing today. And books on C are filling book shelves like believers converging on a holy bank, but here’s a pilgrimage that’s a different kind of voyage.The C odyssey.Written in a easy, riveting and readable style, the book touches heights that few have reached and offers insights that nobody has divined.
The C odyssey is for those who’d like to learn C and for those who have learnt C. Garnished with small programs, followed by in-depth explanations, the journey takes the beginner by the hand, breaking him into the mold, taking him up to a point, and letting him free to explore on his own.The platform covered is wide and diverse.From C under dos to C under unix, Windows,OS/2, and its interfaces with networking and relational databases.
The Odyssey has a seven stop itinerary. Unserialized and district, but threaded by him silken bonds to each other.The saga is a lengthy one, through lands that have been visited separately before.Speaking the same language from different podiums, they abet an undisrupted flow of thought.
Odyssey 3: UNIX - The Open, Boundless C.
UNIX is Much maligned, debated and devoured entity today. An operating system that was possible only through C, it has always been dealt with rather cursorily.
Most C Under UNIX books merely skimmed the surface, instead of cashing in the opportunity to take a trip down to the Philosophy of C, so easily reached through UNIX.
This volume takes you through the innards, questioning the gist of internal data structures like stat, ustat, suid bit control, file and record level locking, IPCs like pipes, named pipes, semaphores, shared memory and message queues.
