Here is a complete package for programmers who are new to UNIX or who would like to make better use of the system. The book provides an introduction to all the tools needed for a C programmer. The CD contains sources and binaries for the most popular GNU tools, including their C/C++ compiler.
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.
"Effective AWK Programming" covers every aspect of the AWK 3.0.3 and 3.0.4 language. It offers up-to-date coverage of the POSIX standard for AWK, and distinguishes standard AWK features from GNU AWK-specific features. The author sheds light on "dark corners" of the language, devotes two chapters to example programs, and includes a summary of how the AWK language evolved.
CVS, the Concurrent Versions System, is the popular source-code management tool that frees developers from the chaos that too often ensues when multiple users work on the same file. An open source technology that is available on most computer platforms, including Windows(r) and Mac OS(r) X, CVS is widely used to manage program code, web site content, and to track changes made to system configuration files. Multiple users can check out files from a directory tree, make changes, and then commit those changes back into the directory. If two developers modify the same file, CVS enables both sets of changes to be merged together into one final file. Although CVS is a lifesaver in many development scenarios, it suffers from poor documentation. But with "Essential CVS," developers can have it all: the order that CVS brings and the comprehensive documentation developers need."Essential CVS" is a complete and easy-to-follow reference that helps programmers and system administrators apply order to the task of managing large quantities of documents. The book covers basic concepts and usage of CVS, and features a comprehensive reference for CVS commands--including a handy Command Reference Card for quick, on-the-job checks. The book also includes advanced information on all aspects of CVS that involve automation, logging, branching and merging, and "watches." Readers will find in-depth coverage of the following: Installing CVS and building your first repositoryBasic use of CVS, including importing projects, checking out projects, committing changes, and updating projectsTagging, branching and mergingWorking with multiple usersClients, operating systems, and IDEsRepository management and managing remote repositoriesProject administration, including bug tracking systems, enforcing log messages, history and annotation, and more.TroubleshootingVersion control is essential to maintaining order in any project, large or small. Any CVS user, from beginners to team leaders and system administrators, will find this practical guide to CVS indispensable in getting the most from this valuable tool.
A guide for administrators running Unix, Windows NT, or Mac OS platforms demonstrates the use of the programming language in file system management, directory services, user administration, log files, and security and network monitoring
The key to mastering any Unix system, especially Linux and Mac OS X, is a thorough knowledge of shell scripting. Scripting is a way to harness and customize the power of any Unix system, and it's an essential skill for any Unix users, including system administrators and professional OS X developers. But beneath this simple promise lies a treacherous ocean of variations in Unix commands and standards. bash Cookbook teaches shell scripting the way Unix masters practice the craft. It presents a variety of recipes and tricks for all levels of shell programmers so that anyone can become a proficient user of the most common Unix shell -- the bash shell -- and cygwin or other popular Unix emulation packages. Packed full of useful scripts, along with examples that explain how to create better scripts, this new cookbook gives professionals and power users everything they need to automate routine tasks and enable them to truly manage their systems -- rather than have their systems manage them.
The book presents innovative methods for the solution of multibody descriptor models. It emphasizes the interdependence of modeling and numerical solution of the arising system of differential-algebraic equations (DAE). Here, it is shown that modifications of non-stiff ODE-solvers are very effective for a large class of multibody systems. In particular, implicit methods are found to dovetail optimally with the linearly implicit structure of the model equations, allowing an inverse dynamics approach for their solution. Furthermore, the book stresses the importance of software development in scientific computing and thus presents a complete example of an interdisciplinary problem solution for an important field of application from technical mechanics.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Tools and Algorithms for the Construction and Analysis of Systems, TACAS'98, held in conjunction with ETAPS in Lisbon, Portugal, in March/April 1998. The 28 revised full papers presented together with an invited talk were selected from a total of 78 submissions. The volume is devoted to conceptual foundations, development, and applications of tools and algorithms for the specification, verification, analysis, and construction of software and hardware systems. The papers are organized in sections on model checking, design and architecture, various applications, fielded applications, verification of real-time systems, mixed analysis techniques, and case studies and experience.
