Pressestimmen

'It's a pleasant read-it's short and non-technical, focussing on ideology.' - Mactech

Synopsis

* Deals with powerful concepts in a simple way * Highlights important characteristics of Operating systems and other abstract entities in a new way * Explores the tenets of the UNIX operating system philosophy Unlike so many books that focus on how to use UNIX, The UNIX Philosophy concentrates on answering the questions: Why use UNIX in the first place?'. Readers will discover the rationale and reasons for such concepts as file system organization, user interface and other system characteristics. In an informative, non-technical fashion, The UNIX Philosophy explores the general principles for applying the UNIX philosophy to software development. This book describes complex software design principles and addresses the importance of small programs, code and data portability, early prototyping, and open user interfaces. The UNIX Philosophy is a book to be read before tackling the highly technical texts on UNIX internals and programming. Written for both the computer layperson and the experienced programmer, this book explores the tenets of the UNIX operating system in detail, dealing with powerful concepts in a comprehensive, straightforward manner.

Einleitungssatz
Many people credit Ken Thompson of AT&T with inventing the UNIX operating system and, in a sense, they're right. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

Von Primoz Peterlin am 20. Juli 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
I suppose this is the kind of book that should be adored by managers. First, it has a stylish cover. Second, it doesn't take much of your time. You should be over with it in about one hour - not only it's thin, it is also typeset in a size larger than the usual book letter size. And third, it comes with ready-made slogans like "Small is beautiful", "Make each program do one thing well" etc, that can come handy at staff meetings.

Even at its rather modest size, this book is stretched to the limits. There is about enough material in it to make a decent article in UnixWorld or some similar magazine, perhaps even two; it could also be made a chapter in some compendium. But that doesn't nearly make it enough for a standalone book.

True, Gancarz writes well, and anecdotical stories in this book make a pleasant bathtub reading. To convince you that Unix indeed is a great design, however, get something substantial instead. If you are a programmer and seeing some actual code doesn't scare you off, I would recommend The Unix Programming Environment by Kernighan and Pike. Though dated, in my opinion it still makes a better introduction to the Unix design philosophy. If you are not that much interested in Unix, you might nevertheless want to consider saving twenty bucks and subscribing to comp.unix.advocacy Usenet group instead.

This is a wonderful little book that every software designer should ready every second year. The book stresses the issues that we know, but all too often forget: small is beautiful, every program should do one thing well, use leverage, build prototypes, ...
The book also has the classical and wonderful story about the three systems of man. The first system is build by man, he has no time to do it "right". It is a "lean, mean computing machine". The success of the first system leads to the second. The second system is built by experts, the design is by a committee, and the result is a fat and slow system. The third system is built by people who have bean "burned" by the second system. Read the complete great story in the book.
For a user of UNIX or a designer of programs in the UNIX environment the book explains the UNIX design philosophy. This is what could be expected. However, software designers of all systems will benefit from reading the book. The UNIX philosophy is applicable and beneficiary to all software systems, regardless of the operating system used.

This is a hilarious book ("winnow out the chaff" using prototypes!!!) that is more about the philosophy of reusable software tools and portable data rather than Unix. (Unix just happened to be the vehicle in which these ideas were delivered...) It takes a fairly radical stand on the so-called basic tenets of the "UNIX Philosophy" but does so more to illustrate its points rather than to work anyone with software biases into a frenzy.
This book cuts through hype and approaches software development and design with a pragmatic and timeless sensibility - a methodology book that ignores object oriented programming, Java, the Internet, or any other technology of the day and focuses instead on more universal aspects of software development - What makes code reusable? What makes data portable? What are the evolutionary stages of a killer app?
Read this insightful and amusing book!

This book was a gift, both in the traditional sense, and in what it gave to my appreciation of the Unix way of doing things. A friend sent this to me, now I have to figure out a way to repay him.
Gancarz manages to put into words the affection I've felt, but never been able to explain, for Unix. Even if you're a member of the other side, one of those who feel like monolithic software is the future, and things like GUI's belong in the kernel, you can still take away from this book some insights into the smaller is better camp.
And, if you do believe in the unix way, "The Unix Philosophy" will show you even more reasons why it simply works. It also provides an intellectual sanity check, a measure to judge your current projects against, and a very high standard to aim for.
