For more than twenty years, serious C programmers have relied on one book for practical, in-depth knowledge of the programming interfaces that drive the UNIX and Linux kernels: W. Richard Stevens’ Advanced Programming in the UNIX® Environment . Now, once again, Rich’s colleague Steve Rago has thoroughly updated this classic work. The new third edition supports today’s leading platforms, reflects new technical advances and best practices, and aligns with Version 4 of the Single UNIX Specification. Steve carefully retains the spirit and approach that have made this book so valuable. Building on Rich’s pioneering work, he begins with files, directories, and processes, carefully laying the groundwork for more advanced techniques, such as signal handling and terminal I/O. He also thoroughly covers threads and multithreaded programming, and socket-based IPC. This edition covers more than seventy new interfaces, including POSIX asynchronous I/O, spin locks, barriers, and POSIX semaphores. Most obsolete interfaces have been removed, except for a few that are ubiquitous. Nearly all examples have been tested on four modern platforms: Solaris 10, Mac OS X version 10.6.8 (Darwin 10.8.0), FreeBSD 8.0, and Ubuntu version 12.04 (based on Linux 3.2). As in previous editions, you’ll learn through examples, including more than ten thousand lines of downloadable, ISO C source code. More than four hundred system calls and functions are demonstrated with concise, complete programs that clearly illustrate their usage, arguments, and return values. To tie together what you’ve learned, the book presents several chapter-length case studies, each reflecting contemporary environments. Advanced Programming in the UNIX® Environment has helped generations of programmers write code with exceptional power, performance, and reliability. Now updated for today’s systems, this third edition will be even more valuable.

This book provides an authoritative overview of the global development of surgical paediatrics. Biographical accounts of key people who developed this relatively new specialty, many of whom are now household names, are presented. The compendium also acknowledges the enormous contribution of imaging (ultrasound/MRI and PET scans), minimal invasive surgery, and fetal surgery, as well as the role of related journals and associations, in the progress of surgical paediatrics.Many of the contributors have been instrumental to the development of surgical paediatrics in their respective countries, and have considerable worldwide influence on the management of children requiring surgical care. Through their valuable insight and first-hand experience, this book not only shines a light on the past achievements of previous generations of paediatric surgeons, but also serves as a model to encourage future generations to do likewise.

Advanced Programming Methodologies consists of lecture demos and practical experiments from the Summer School on Advanced Programming Methodologies which took place in Rome, Italy, on September 17-24, 1987. The school focused on tools of advanced programming as well as theoretical foundations for software engineering. Problems connected with implementation and application of high-level programming languages are highlighted. Comprised of 11 chapters, this volume first looks at two software development projects at the Institute of Informatics of the University of Warsaw in Poland, with emphasis on the methodologies used in programming and implementation. The reader is then introduced to flexible specification environments; object-oriented programming; and Paragon's type hierarchies for data abstraction. Subsequent chapters focus on the inheritance rule in object-oriented programming; a functional programming approach to modularity in large software systems; database management systems; and relational algebra and fixpoint computation for logic programming implementation. The book also examines modules in high-level programming languages before concluding with a chapter devoted to storage management. This book is intended for computer programmers, undergraduate students taking various courses in programming, and advanced students of computer science.

Software Engineering and Environment examines the various aspects of software development, describing a number of software life cycle models. Twelve in-depth chapters discuss the different phases of a software life cycle, with an emphasis on the object-oriented paradigm. In addition to technical models, algorithms, and programming styles, the author also covers several managerial issues key to software project management. Featuring an abundance of helpful illustrations, this cogent work is an excellent resource for project managers, programmers, and other computer scientists involved in software production.

Advanced Programming with Microsoft QuickC provides the necessary programming tools for programmers who are interested in learning new skills in developing some useful tools and PC applications using the QuickC programming language. The book emphasizes practical and useful programming examples. It is organized into five sections. The first section introduces the proposed ANSI standard features, tips and techniques about C programming style, working with the C preprocessor, and tips for using pointers and managing memory allocation tasks. Section 2 presents data structures, discussing techniques for constructing useful and reliable data structures from linked lists to binary trees. The third section covers the many tools that QuickC provides for accessing files and other I/O devices. Section 4 explains the techniques for interacting with DOS and the special features of QuickC. The final chapter presents the tools and techniques for developing QuickC-like user interfaces. Computer programmers will find the text very useful.

At present, there is a general consensus on the nature of learning programming, but there are different opinions on what forms an effective environment for it. It is generally recognized that the development of a mental model is a formidable task for the student and that learning programming is a complex activity that depends heavily on metacognitive skills. This book, based on a NATO workshop, presents both pure cognitive models and experimental learning environments, and discusses what characteristics can make a learning model effective, especially in relation to the learning environment (natural or computerized). The papers cover cognitive models related to different aspects of programming, classes of learners, and types of environment, and are organized in three groups: theoretical and empirical studies on understanding programming, environments for learning programming, and learning programming in school environments. Comprehension, design, construction, testing, debugging, and verification are recognized as interdependent skills, which require complicated analysis and may develop independently, and indifferent orders, in novices. This book shows that there is unlikely to be asingle path from novice to expert and that the structure of the final product (the program) may not constrain the process by which it comes into being as much as some would advocate.
