Download E-books Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment, 3rd Edition PDF

By W. Richard Stevens, Stephen A. Rago

For greater than 20 years, critical C programmers have trusted one publication for sensible, in-depth wisdom of the programming interfaces that force the UNIX and Linux kernels: W. Richard Stevens’ Advanced Programming within the UNIX® Environment . Now, once more, Rich’s colleague Steve Rago has completely up-to-date this vintage paintings. the recent 3rd variation helps today’s prime systems, displays new technical advances and top practices, and aligns with model four of the only UNIX Specification.

 

Steve conscientiously keeps the spirit and procedure that experience made this publication so necessary. development on Rich’s pioneering paintings, he starts with records, directories, and approaches, rigorously laying the basis for extra complex recommendations, similar to sign dealing with and terminal I/O. He additionally completely covers threads and multithreaded programming, and socket-based IPC.

 

This version covers greater than seventy new interfaces, together with POSIX asynchronous I/O, spin locks, boundaries, and POSIX semaphores. so much out of date interfaces were got rid of, apart from a number of which are ubiquitous. approximately all examples were validated on 4 sleek structures: Solaris 10, Mac OS X model 10.6.8 (Darwin 10.8.0), FreeBSD 8.0, and Ubuntu model 12.04 (based on Linux 3.2).

 

As in past versions, you’ll study via examples, together with greater than 10000 traces of downloadable, ISO C resource code. greater than 400 procedure calls and services are confirmed with concise, whole courses that basically illustrate their utilization, arguments, and go back values. To tie jointly what you’ve discovered, the publication provides a number of chapter-length case reviews, each one reflecting modern environments.

 

Advanced Programming within the UNIX® surroundings has helped generations of programmers write code with remarkable energy, functionality, and reliability. Now up-to-date for today’s structures, this 3rd version should be much more valuable.

Download E-books Fundamentals of Geomorphology (Routledge Fundamentals of Physical Geography) PDF

This greatly revised, restructured, and up-to-date version keeps to offer an interesting and accomplished advent to the topic, exploring the world’s landforms from a vast structures viewpoint. It covers the fundamentals of Earth floor types and approaches, whereas reflecting at the newest advancements within the box. Fundamentals of Geomorphology starts off with a attention of the character of geomorphology, procedure and shape, background, and geomorphic structures, and strikes directly to discuss:

  • structure: structural landforms linked to plate tectonics and people linked to volcanoes, influence craters, and folds, faults, and joints
  • process and shape: landforms as a result of, or prompted by way of, the exogenic corporations of weathering, operating water, flowing ice and meltwater, flooring ice and frost, the wind, and the ocean; landforms constructed on limestone; and panorama evolution, a dialogue of historical landforms, together with palaeosurfaces, stagnant panorama beneficial properties, and evolutionary features of panorama change.

This 3rd version has been absolutely up to date to incorporate a clearer preliminary rationalization of the character of geomorphology, of land floor strategy and shape, and of land-surface swap over diverse timescales. The textual content has been restructured to include details on geomorphic fabrics and techniques at improved issues within the e-book. eventually, ancient geomorphology has been built-in through the textual content to mirror the significance of historical past in all elements of geomorphology.

Fundamentals of Geomorphology presents a stimulating and cutting edge standpoint at the key issues and debates in the box of geomorphology. Written in an obtainable and vigorous demeanour, it contains courses to additional studying, bankruptcy summaries, and an intensive word list of keyword phrases. The publication can also be illustrated all through with over 2 hundred informative diagrams and tasty images, all in colour.
