Quatrième de couverture

"IF YOU HAVE EVER STRUGGLED to use and understand UNIX through system manuals or by bothering anyone who knows more than you do, you will appreciate this book. If you seem to always be battling UNIX and suspect that it can actually perform for you if you only knew what was available, you will love this book. If you are thinking about using UNIX, you must have this book. Even for those who know a lot about UNIX, the book may serve as a concise reference."
--IEEE Software, on the first edition of this best-selling work

Thoroughly updated to account for recent developments, the Second Edition of UNIX for the Impatient is is an in-depth, comprehensive guide to UNIX -- a handbook you can use both for learning and as a ready reference. Clear, concise, and readable, the book is written for the technically oriented UNIX user who doesn't want to wade through verbose tutorials but isn't already an expert. Its functional organization makes it easy to find the right tool for any task, with a complete alphabetical summary providing fast lookup of commands, options, and subcommands. An extensive discussion of underlying UNIX concepts, supplemented by a glossary, enables even a UNIX beginner to penetrate the mysteries of UNIX terminology.

The Second Edition is based on the IEEE POSIX.2 Standard now widely adopted by UNIX vendors and implementors. Descriptions of commands and facilities have been extensively revised to conform to the POSIX specifications and extended to cover the entire set of POSIX.2 user utilities. As before, important System V, BSD, and GNU variations and enhancements are also presented.

Topics include user utilities, shells, the vi editor and other standard editors, the GNU Emacs editor, Internet access tools, the awk language, and the X Window System. New topics in the Second Edition include the Korn Shell, internationalization, the World Wide Web, newsreaders, and system administration from the user's perspective. The Emacs coverage has been updated to Emacs Version 19 and now covers the use of Emacs under X. Background material now includes popular new systems such as Linux and FreeBSD.

A consulting computer scientist and past president of the Association for Computing Machinery, he specializes in programming languages, design and implementation of software systems, and technical writing. He received his bachelor's degree in mathematics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1956 and his doctorate in mathematics there in 1963, studying artificial intelligence under Marvin Minsky and John McCarthy and writing his dissertation on "Machine Verification of Mathematical Proof". He is one of the designers of the first LISP system and also the designer of the CIMS PL/I system, which he developed while a professor at New York University. He also participated in the design of the Software Engineering Design Language (SEDL), developed at the IBM T.J. Watson Laboratories. Currently he is working on the design of SPLASH, a Systems Programming LAnguage for Software Hackers and on a new book, OS/2 for the Impatient. In 1995 he was honored as a Fellow of the ACM. Paul resides in Deerfield, Massachusetts, where he writes, hacks, hikes, hunts wild mushrooms, and listens to classical music. His Internet address is abrahams@acm.org.

Bruce R.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Ideal quick reference for an experienced IT professional 29 décembre 1999
Par Mike Christie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
If you just need to get something done--using Emacs to write some C++, or zipping up some files on a Unix box and ftp'ing them somewhere else--then this is the book you need. The authors assume that you know what a file, or a directory, or a compiler is. The target audience is someone for whom Unix is the third or fourth (or more) operating system they've had to work with.
The book is indexed by function, not just by command. For example, suppose you want to compress a bunch of files. Looking up compress takes you to p.140; reading the possibilities you soon discover that gzip and tar are probably the programs you want to use. You can check out tar and discover the alternatives, cpio and pax, and find out which might be most portable in your situation.
I use this book for several projects at a client site where I had to write Perl and Tcl/Tk apps. I found it invaluable for everything from help with Emacs to locating utilities.
I should also add that the book is written very much in the style of a reference manual, *NOT* of a tutorial or guide. You should be comfortable with digging in reference books before you buy this, or you might find it a frustrating book to work with. I think most programmers pick up this skill very quickly, so I think this will exclude mostly beginners.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great for the not-quite-beginner 5 novembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
This is a great book, but it's not for the Unix novice. For them, there's Teach Yourself Unix in 24 Hours. After you get through that, buy this book. I'm a 20-year mainframe veteran who last saw Unix in college, before it had nice things like shell scripts. This book was overwhelming when I first returned to the Unix world; however, after a little experience, this book is an easy and incredibly informative read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the best UNIX books I've seen 20 octobre 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This book is a wonderful resource for someone comfortable with computers but new to UNIX. It covers a lot of introductory topics with minimum wasted space. The authors don't go into any single subject too deeply, so it's not overwhelming to someone who just needs to get around on a UNIX system, but it's nonetheless very information-rich, and by the end of the book they cover some surprisingly complex topics.
I highly recommend this book to anyone starting off in UNIX, be it user or sysadmin.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointed 26 août 1999
Par rpr313@excite.com - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The title sounds perfect for me, but I found this book very frustrating. Much of it is paraphrased man pages, and there are very few actual examples. This is frustrating when you have to really study, say, the regular expression syntax, when a simple example would do wonders instead. I do use this book occassionally for quick reference, but otherwise look elsewhere.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Perfect for programmers new to Unix 7 décembre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Face it, if you're a programmer, you don't need a book to be telling you the basics of computers all over again. You want to figure out how to use the shell, the text editors, the many programming tools available, and a load of other things that you figure Unix will let you do, but don't quite know what those tools are yet.
This book showed me a lot of stuff I didn't suspect existed in Unix, is broad yet appropriately detailed, and doesn't bore you with computer newbie stuff you already knew from other OS's. Get it.
