Raymond releases chapters of new Unix programming book

Author: JT Smith

From Eric S. Raymond: Many of you know that I have been working on a book which is an attempt
to capture much of the unwritten engineering lore of the Unix
community.
I welcome comments and feedback on "The Art of Unix Programming"; like
"The New Hacker's Dictionary", it's a book that can only achieve its
goals
by reflecting and focusing the wisdom of our entire community.I have released Chapters 3 and 4 of the draft of "The Art of Unix
Programming"
at the usual location: http://www.tuxedo.org/~esr/writings/taoup/.

Chapter 1 has two new sections: "What Unix Got Wrong" and "Flexibility
In Depth". Chapter 2 has minor revisions.
