The environment described is that of spare text-only terminals, command line prompts, inputs, outputs, and the pipes that connect them. It is from a time when telephones were anchored in place with a wire, before they dropped prkgramming cords and became our constant companions, sporting sleek bodies, incorporating lenses, clocks, and programing.
Yet if you pare away the anachronism there Written inThe Unix Programming Environment introduces the reader to the then middle-aged Unix operating system. Yet if you pare away the anachronism there is a philosophy at work in the Unix they present that still holds currency today.
The inventors of Unix envisioned information technology as a fluid composition of interconnected operations. The aggregate machine specific to a particular solution is composed of independent parts agnostic of the whole; its structure may be quarried, like pieces of marble stripped from a conquered metropolis, and used to build something new. Sadly, although Unix encourages pillage, there are no civilians to ravage, and no vanquished skulls to pile into pyramids.
Maybe in the next version. If you need a break from widgets, sliders, plugins, social networking, mobile phone apps, and all the rest envirinment comes with enacting our hyperconnected world, then take a look at this book.
Reading it is like replacing your television with a fire pit, or looking at figures of animals and men on the walls of a cave. Feb 06, Manny rated it it was amazing Shelves: You can make poetry out of anything.
The Unix Programming Environment – Wikipedia
This book is a stunning example. May 09, Akos Hochrein rated it liked it. First environmeht all, the book is incredibly old. If you are a software developer in this world, you will most likely never want to hold books related to your craft as old as this.
However, UNIX is a timeless beauty. This book show exactly why.
Apart from receiving practical knowledge with many exercises to hone the newly attained knowledge, the book provide it’s r First of all, the book is incredibly old. Apart from receiving practical knowledge with many exercises to hone the newly attained knowledge, the book provide it’s reader with deep insight on the theoretical, under-the-surface part of the UNIX system. Sadly, the book is very old indeed, after setting us up with the filters and programming the environment, I have felt, that the coming sections will not be very interesting or up to date, and so they weren’t.
My suggestion to new readers is to keep away from the last 2 sections of the book, describing the C programming environment unless the reader is interested in how compilers were written in the old timesand the parts about documentation, since we have way better tools for those in modern environments.
Apr 16, Kyle The Hacker rated it it was amazing. Despite its age, this book remains remarkably relevant to modern Unix systems. It explains many of the tools available on Unix systems. I’ve seen many updates on twitter expressing surprise at the fact that Unix allows this or that; many of the posters would have done well to read this book as most of what I’ve seen was covered in this book.
Apr 30, Mark Schulz rated it it was amazing.
Should be read by every programmer new to Linux. Kernighan has always been able to give clear explanations and examples of the Unix philosophy.
This is the third time I have read the book and I found it just as useful and illuminating as the first time. I started programming on a Unix system in with only the V6 doc Should be read by every programmer new to Linux.
UNIX Programming Enviornment
I started programming on a Unix system in with only the V6 documentation some written by Kernighan and the source code to learn from. Kernighan’s books helped immensely when they came out.
Once met Brian in Sydney in the ‘s – his books were more interesting. If you want to become a better programmer then read this book. Jul 10, John Wye added it. Perfectly captures the Unix philosophy of breaking down complex tasks into smaller ones held together by glue code. This book, more than any other, taught me to environmwnt the way a programmer thinks.
Despite its age it was published in most of the examples still compile and run on a modern Unix-like system; a testament to the firm conceptual foundation of Unix. Jul 16, Ayush Bhat rated it it was amazing. Small, simple programs that do one thing really well glued together.
Amazingly powerful and beautiful. Oct 17, Ovidiu Neatu rated it really liked it. Kind of obsolate, as so many people said already. I began reading the book expecting to understand more of the unix system call using the C programming language, but.
I din’t find alot of that. In spite of being obsolate and my expectation going down I like very much Brian Kerninghan’s way of teaching stuff. The epic chapter “Program Development” convinced me to give a 4 star to the pikke.
The chapter is about creating a programming language so you go to all kind of stuff a computer scientist sh Kind of obsolate, as so many people said already. The chapter is about creating a programming language so you go to all kind of stuff a computer scientist should have idea of: It’s actually quite awesome to see how a book which is almost as old as I am dated ’84 can still be relevant today, certainly if you keep into account that this book is covering a topic in one of the fastest evolving disciplines today.
It even has an advantage over more modern books that it’s very to the point and technically going very deep. Well it’s a classic, what It’s actually quite awesome to kednighan how a book which is almost as old as I am dated ’84 can still be relevant today, certainly if pikd keep into account that this book is covering a topic in one of the fastest evolving disciplines today.
Well it’s a classic, what more is there to say. Mar 06, knoba rated enironment really liked it. UNIX for Beginners 2. The File System 3. Using the Shell 4. Document Preparation Epilog Appendix 1. Editor Summary Appendix 2. Mar 02, Anth1y rated it really liked it Shelves: Also a lot of the tutorials were super helpful.
I highly recommend this for anyone looking to become a sysadmin. Jan 06, Kazutaka Ogaki rated it it was amazing. This is my first contact UNIX. Although most of people have no need to know command line magics, this ennvironment is still “MUST” for apprentices of Guru. Just a spell is not enough.
To know ‘WHY’ is the key. This book is nearest place from the source of UNIX, so, full of anecdotes lives here. Feb 08, David Carroll rated it liked it. A good read for those interested in UNIX history and written by some of the gentlemen who invented it back in the late 60’s. May 25, Dan Allen rated it it was amazing. An excellent introductory text to the world of the command line, small tools, and Unix.
The C programming language, as well as Awk are described. Command shells are demonstrated. A most important work, and well written too.
Mar 06, Jonathan Dowland rated it really liked it. Jul 25, Jeremy Dagorn rated it really liked it. Clear, with good examples.
Maybe some parts are too long to be read at one.
