Write software that draws directly on services offered by the Linux kernel and core system libraries. With this comprehensive book, Linux kernel contributor Robert Love provides you with a tutorial on Linux system programming, a reference manual on Linux system calls, and an insider's guide to writing smarter, faster code. Love clearly distinguishes between POSIX standard functions and special services offered only by Linux. With a new chapter on multithreading, this updated and expanded edition provides an in-depth look at Linux from both a theoretical and applied perspective over a wide range of programming topics, including: • A Linux kernel, C library, and C compiler overview. • Basic I/O operations, such as reading from and writing to files. • Advanced I/O interfaces, memory mappings, and optimization techniques. • The family of system calls for basic process management. • Advanced process management, including real-time processes. • Thread concepts, multithreaded programming, and Pthreads. • File and directory management. • Interfaces for allocating memory and optimizing memory access. • Basic and advanced signal interfaces, and their role on the system. • Clock management, including POSIX clocks and high-resolution timers.
Beginning Linux Programming, Fourth Edition continues its unique approach to teaching UNIX programming in a simple and structured way on the Linux platform. Through the use of detailed and realistic examples, students learn by doing, and are able to move from being a Linux beginner to creating custom applications in Linux. The book introduces fundamental concepts beginning with the basics of writing Unix programs in C, and including material on basic system calls, file I/O, interprocess communication (for getting programs to work together), and shell programming. Parallel to this, the book introduces the toolkits and libraries for working with user interfaces, from simpler terminal mode applications to X and GTK+ for graphical user interfaces. Advanced topics are covered in detail such as processes, pipes, semaphores, socket programming, using MySQL, writing applications for the GNOME or the KDE desktop, writing device drivers, POSIX Threads, and kernel programming for the latest Linux Kernel.

Device drivers literally drive everything you're interested in - disks, monitors, keyboards, modems - everything outside the computer chip and memory. And writing device drivers is one of the few areas of programming for the Linux operating system that calls for unique, Linux-specific knowledge. For years now, programmers have relied on the classic Linux Device Drivers from O'Reilly to master this critical subject. Now in its third edition, this bestselling guide provides all the information you'll need to write drivers for a wide range of devices. Over the years the book has helped countless programmers learn: - how to support computer peripherals under the Linux operating system; - how to develop and write software for new hardware under Linux; - the basics of Linux operation even if they are not expecting to write a driver. The new edition of LINUX DEVICE DRIVERS is better than ever. The book covers all the significant changes to Version 2.6 of the Linux kernel, which simplifies many activities, and contains subtle new features that can make a driver both more efficient and more flexible. Readers will find new chapters on important types of drivers not covered previously, such as consoles, USB drivers, and more. Best of all, you don't have to be a kernel hacker to understand and enjoy this book. All you need is an understanding of the C programming language and some background in Unix system calls. And for maximum ease-of-use, the book uses full-featured examples that you can compile and run without special hardware. Today Linux holds fast as the most rapidly growing segment of the computer market and continues to win over enthusiastic adherents in many application areas. With this increasing support, Linux is now absolutely mainstream, and viewed as a solid platform for embedded systems. If you're writing device drivers, you'll want this book. In fact, you'll wonder how drivers are ever written without it.
In this third edition of his bestselling guide to Intel x86 assembly language under Linux, Jeff Duntemann positions assembly not as unapproachable geek arcana but as a first programming language, suitable for readers who have no previous programming experience. As the fundamental language of the CPU, assembly lays the groundwork for all other programming languages, especially native-code C, C++, and Pascal. By mastering assembly, programmers will learn how x86 computers operate all the way down to "the bare silicon", at a level of detail that no other approach can equal. Assembly Language Step by Step, Third Edition, helps you: Review the fundamental concepts behind computing and programming, including the hexadecimal and binary number bases. Understand the evolution of the Intel CPUs and how modern x86 processors operate. Grasp the process of programming itself, from editing source code through assembly, linking, and debugging. Comprehend x86 32-bit protected-mode memory addressing. Learn the x86 instruction set by dissecting numerous complete example programs. Work with the wealth of free programming utilities under Ubuntu Linux, including the Kate editor, the NASM assembler, and the GNU toolset. Master practical details of Linux programming, including procedures, macros, the INT 80h call gate, and calls to the standard C libraries.

Web programming includes a group of skills that requires practice. In order to enhance learners’ programming skills, they need to do a lot of programming practice. This book, therefore, presents a proposed educational web-based system to improve the learners' web programming skills. System development process and system UML diagrams are illustrated in the book. The proposed system provides an online code editor for editing, updating, and executing code, so the learners can execute examples and practical exercises online. In addition, the system provides communication and interactive tools among learners and instructor including Chat Room, E-Mail, and Discussion Board (Forum). The system also provides the instructor with control panel includes a set of functions to manage the system. The effectiveness of the proposed system has resulted from empirical work on students of computer department. The book also includes the details of the experimental work and statistical analysis of students' results.
