17 Jun 2013 Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment, 3rd Edition [31488]
By W. Richard Stevens, Stephen A. Rago

For more than twenty years, serious C programmers have relied on one book for practical, in-depth knowledge of the programming interfaces that drive the UNIX and Linux kernels: W. Richard Stevens' Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment. Now, once again, Rich's colleague Steve Rago has thoroughly updated this classic work. The new third edition supports today's leading platforms, reflects new technical advances and best practices, and aligns with Version 4 of the Single UNIX Specification. Steve carefully retains the spirit and approach that have made this book so valuable. Building on Rich's pioneering work, he begins with files, directories, and processes, carefully laying the groundwork for more advanced techniques, such as signal handling and terminal I/O. He also thoroughly covers threads and multithreaded programming, and socket-based IPC.

03 Jun 2013 Why Sun's NIS will never die [31295]
Although 28 years old and insecure, Sun's old Network Information Service lives on in networks across the globe

Paul Venezia writes in InfoWorld, "NIS (nee YP) appears to be immortal. It's almost 30 years old, and it is still in widespread use today. Sure, you could point to many other protocols and services in current use that are as old or older, but NIS is somewhat of an oddity in that it's an authentication mechanism that has been ostensibly supplanted numerous times in numerous ways, yet still hangs on in Unix shops the world over. Depending on the environment, this could be good or bad..."
