Book News Annotation:
Combines discussion of operating system theory with examples of its applications in key OpenVMS operating system facilities. Each chapter introduces a central concept, provides examples using the concept, outlines related issues, and provides exercises and explained answers, plus programming projects and topics for research papers. This second edition gives program examples in C. For application programmers, systems managers, and senior undergraduate students with extensive design and programming experience. As an undergraduate text, material is too long for a ten-week quarter if exercises are assigned.
