What's the Best Book for Learning Linux Systems Programming? [closed]


A database of the best books for learning Linux can be found here: http://www.tldp.org/guides.html

I'm reading now Introduction to Linux - A Practical Guide by Machtelt Garrels

And I like it, the way it is written makes it easy to understand.

I agree with the Stevens recommendation. The only real alternative is Advanced UNIX Programming by MJ Rochkind: http://basepath.com/aup/

ORA's POSIX programming manual (http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780937175736) can be useful, but I haven't read it myself.

I would recommend Bruce Molay's Understanding Unix / Linux Programming (http://wps.prenhall.com/esm_molay_UNIXProg_1/). I had him as an instructor at Harvard and he was fantastic.

You can name in the book Linux system programming read in google books. It's a really good book to recommend.
