The Design of the UNIX Operating System 1st Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs.295

In this book the author traces the popularity of the UNIX system throughout the computer industry. He describes internal algorithms and structures that form the basis of the operating system (kernel) and their relationship to the programmer interface. The text is a description of the general flow of various algorithms and most important, a description of how they interact with each other. Algorithms are presented in a C-like pseudo-code to aid the reader in understanding the natural language description and their names correspond to the procedure names in the kernel.

A good starter material

Although a very old book on the design of the unix operation system, I strongly believe that aspirants who want to learn about OS design could read this book as the first book just after understanding OS theory. I read this book 13 years back to get introduced to the OS fundamentals in a practical sense. This book covers the details on what was being practiced in OS design and implementation. Modern day operating systems have evolved a lot after this book, but legacy still remains, which should make this book still an interesting read. There is nothing cutting edge in this book (with respect to today's world) but a lot of insights on why and how.

Awesome Book!

This is THE BOOK to study about the various commands used in the UNIX systems. Truly an in-depth treatment of the concepts. No wonder Linus Torvalds referred to this book extensively while working on his Linux operating system. Truly a classic and a must for all UNIX enthuasiasts. Its amazing that this book has stood the test of time and is still relevant to most programmers and computer professionals. Readable and enlightening.
