The authors tried to cover nearly all the topics in linux programming (excluding databases). The results are quite mixed. The most of explanation is done using C, though C++ is also touched a couple of times.
The book consists of 6 parts.
Part 1 is the linux programming toolkit. Not bad at all. Suprising things are that gdb is described in part 5, and electric fence in part 2, not here.
Part 2 - System programming, Part 3 - Interprocess communication and networking. These parts are central and most valuable in the book. Good. Though I like Linux Application Development by M.K.Johnson and E.W.Troan better.
Part 4 - Programming the user interface. Very shallow. You can learn that such and such techniques exist but may hardly understand how to use them.
Part 5 - Special programming techniques. A strange feeling. As if the authors decided to collect here the material which they did'nt know where else to place.
Part 6 - Finishing touches (about creating the software packages and documentation). Not bad at all, though a little shallow again.
As it was already said in the previous reviews there are regular references to the non-existing CD.
RESUME: it is an acceptable book, espesially if you just start programming linux, or migrate from another platform. You will get acquainted quickly with the most necessary things. So if you have bought it, try to enjoy it:).
If you don't have it yet I recommend better to buy already mentioned Linux Application Development for both application and system programmers, plus Programming with Qt by M.Dalheimer or Developing Linux Application by E.Harlow if you are interested in GUI development for KDE or GNOME respectively.
Up until about a year ago, I resisted transitioning to e-books. Now, that is my preference for all reading material, even though the technology isn't quite "there" yet. The technology is now "good enough," and continues to improve.
Other than not being an e-book, it was very useful, and I used it to rescue myself from the bind of taking on a contract that was a bit of a stretch for me, so it was definitely worth the price -- especially since I got it very cheap because of a torn binding. The torn binding was easy to repair with some transparent packing tape, and did not affect the value of the contents in any way. After all, I do intend to wear it out anyway.
