The expert, example-rich guide to Linux processes and IPC.
Serious Linux software developers need a sophisticated understanding of processes, system level programming and interprocess communication techniques. Now, John Shapley Gray, author of the widely praised Interprocess Communication in UNIX, Second Edition, zeroes in on the core techniques Linux uses to manage processes and IPC. With exceptional precision and great clarity, Gray explains what processes are, how they're generated, how they access their environments, how they communicate and how to use them to build robust, high-performance systems.
Gray presents dozens of standalone program examples ; all compiled with the GNU C/C++ compiler 2.96 & 3.2, and fully tested on PC platforms running Red Hat Linux 7.3 & 8.0.
