GNU C++ for Linux, w. CD-ROM (Author Teaches)
GNU C++ for Linux, w. CD-ROM (Author Teaches)
von Tom Swan
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent self-contained introduction to LINUX and C++, 19. Dezember 1999
This book comes with the LINUX operating system and a full program development environment on CD.
The book does not require any previous knowledge of C++ or LINUX or UNIX or the GNU tools. All commands are carefully explained. It even explains how to use a Zip drive with LINUX. It even explains how to work around certain bugs in gdb.
The book uses the step-by-step approach, with fully worked exercises in the text. All the code in the text comes on CD ROM. At each point in the learning process, the reader produces working code.
There are helpful notes and warnings that are highlighted to emphasize their importance.
It is both a tutorial and a reference, 800 pages of solid information. A full reference on every aspect of C++ on LINUX would take thousands of pages, and the book refers to the on-line LINUX documentation for topics (such as calloc) it does not cover in depth. The choice of the topics covered seems excellent. One will be quite competent in C++ if one works one's way to the end of the book.
The one thing I find questionable is the author's choice to teach Xlib and V rather than the more popular GTK. On the other hand, covering GTK requires its own book, and an introductory book has to draw the line somewhere at what it teaches.
I should also point out that there are lots of programming languages one can use on LINUX besides C++, for example, Perl, Java, Python, and Tcl/Tk. I don't mean this as a criticism of the book but if you want to start LINUX programming and you are new to programming one of these languages might be a better place to start since they are easier to learn than C++.
As an ad says in the back of the book, Welcome to the Revolution.
Que classifies the knowledge level as Intermediate . This is fair. While the book is self-contained, some knowlege of how to program and "computer maturity" will be very helpful.

  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best Introduction to Java, 27. November 1999
This book provides the best introduction to Java.
It is clear and well-organized.
Java has grown too vast for any one book to cover it in its entirety but this book covers the essential things a begnning Java programmer should know.
There is a companion second volume that goes into other topics.
The explanations in the book are very good and very clear.
The coding examples work.
There are a lot of terrible books on Java. This book is a gem.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Practical. Always by my side., 27. November 1999
This is the book I always turn to when I have a UNIX question. No other book has so much jam-packed information.
It is clearly organized.
The one problem with this new edition is they dropped the command summaries for the different debuggers. This was invaluable. The lack of this section drops the book from 5 stars to 3 stars.
Also the stuff on troff, mm, etc., is just a waste. I haven't seen anyone use those dinosaurs in a while. It would have been better to include coverage of HTML/XML and possibly framemaker.
A section on perl would be handy as well.


TCL and the TK Toolkit (Addison-Wesley Professional Computing)
TCL and the TK Toolkit (Addison-Wesley Professional Computing)
von John K. Ousterhout
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 51,73

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excllent introduction to Tcl/Tk, 27. November 1999
This is the best tutorial on Tcl/Tk. It is wonderfully clear and well organized.
The book deals with earlier versions of Tcl and Tk but I've yet to run across an example that doesn't work. (I'm sure there are some.)
This book helped me greatly when I decided to learn Tcl/Tk, and it is a pleasure to read.
The author is the creator of Tcl/Tk and a superb educator as well.
The book has a UNIX orientation though I tried on the software on my Windows 98 machine and found that his examples work. He uses the X-windows system as a basis but his explanation of X is so simple and clear I did not find my ignorance of it a problem. Also the Tk I'm using (8.2) on Windows 98 works great with his examples.


Internet E-mail Protocols, Standards and Implementation (Artech House Telecommunications Library)
Internet E-mail Protocols, Standards and Implementation (Artech House Telecommunications Library)
von Lawrence Hughes
  Gebundene Ausgabe

5.0 von 5 Sternen Superb book. Highly recommend it., 27. November 1999
I had to implement a POP-3 mail client and this book saved my life.
The material in the book is overly oriented towards NT and you have to take with a grain of salt its NT bias. Its technical content however is superb. The mail protocols it describes work on UNIX without change. The one thing you have to watch out for is the different circumstances under which NT and UNIX produce "\r".
The well organized CD is in and of itself worth the price of the book. The book gave me a tutorial which explained what I needed to do. The CD gave me the details.
I am an experienced programmer and I'm not sure this book will help beginners though for beginners it has very useful glossaries.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great introduction. Does not assume knowledge of networking, 27. November 1999
This book is a great introduction to TCP/IP. It is pretty self-contained and those with computer experience but without networking experiencing will find that it is a good introduction to networking. It is not complete as Stevens' TCP/IP Illustrated, however.


Basic Writings of Nietzsche (Modern Library (Hardcover))
Basic Writings of Nietzsche (Modern Library (Hardcover))
von Friedrich Nietzsche
  Gebundene Ausgabe
Preis: EUR 23,80

5.0 von 5 Sternen Indispensible collection of Nietzsche's Writings, 25. November 1999
This book is the best collection of Nietzsche's writings. Kaufmann's translation is incomparable; it has energy, wit; its language is a delight. In other translations Nietzsche comes off as much more ponderous.
The Birth of Tragedy is a good place to start for knowledge of the early Nietzsche and is an indispensible book for understanding what came later. The Genelogy of Morals is the least aphoristic of Nietzsche's writings and provides an extended treatment of Nietzsche's famous and infamous views on morality, especially Christian morality. Beyond Good and Evil is aphoristic brilliance containing many of Nietzsche's most famous ideas.
The one thing that would make this book perfect is the addition of Kaufmann's translation of the Gay Science.
For those interested in Nietzsche there is no better place to start than this book.
Nietzsche like Plato and unlike most philosophers really knew how to write. His writing is brilliant, original, and his style has no peer. Kaufmann produces English that is without peer in his translation of Nietzsche's works.
Whether you love him or hate him, exposure to Nietzsche can be a life-changing experience.

TCP/IP Illustrated I: The Protocols
TCP/IP Illustrated I: The Protocols
von W. Richard Stevens
  Gebundene Ausgabe

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best book on TCP/IP, 25. November 1999
A comprehensive clearly written reference and tutorial. This is the best book on TCP/IP.
Sometimes there can be subtle bugs in programming TCP/IP that require a greater knowledge of its protocol. This book and its companion volumes will give you the knowledge you need.
As an expert on middleware, I've found this book to be indispensible.

As an expert in writing middleware this is the book I turn to for programming TCP/IP on UNIX. Its explanations are clear, as a reference it is comprehensive. It is the best book on the subject.
