Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Thoroughly updated to reflect the changes made in Release 4.2, the third edition of this respected title presents Unix as it is used today. A thorough tutorial-based introduction to Unix, this book covers the operating system, utilities, shell programming, the vi editor, job control, system administration and much more.

Unix System V includes new chapters on Graphical User Interfaces, Networking, emacs, and the Korn Shell as well as new appendices on the Posix standards and the version- specific features of AIX, HPUX, and SCO Unix. In addition, the book describes more than 75 of the most frequently used Unix utilities such as awk, make, sccs, rcs, sed, and sort. This essential tutorial and reference guides readers through each chapter with the help of easy-to-follow examples, sample screens, command summaries, and chapter review exercises.

A separate version of the book is available bundled with the PC-based Coherent operating system.
