TechBookReport on 'Linux Application Development'
TBR writes "This book, by a pair of authors with excellent Linux development credentials, aims to provide a thorough grounding in Linux programming for C programmers. Assuming little prior knowledge of programming on Linux (or Unix for that matter), the book does assume competency in C programming and some familiarity with the platform. Obviously if you have no experience of Linux or Unix then you'll need to gain some first before attempting to port code across. On the other hand if you're coming from a Unix background then you'll appreciate the way the book is very much focused on Linux as part of the Unix family, complete with POSIX and BSD references."
