Understanding the concepts of processes and interprocess communications (IPC) is fundamental to developing software for Linux. This book zeroes right in on the key techniques of processes and interprocess communication - from primitive communications to the complexities of sockets. It covers every aspect of UNIX/Linux interprocess communications in sufficient detail to allow experienced programmers to begin writing useful code immediately. The book also includes a precise description of the basics of network programming that make this one of the best introductory books on UNIX/Linux network programming using sockets. Grey explains exactly what processes are, how they are generated, how they can access their own environments, and how they can communicate with other processes. From beginning to end, the book truly leads you through the "nooks and crannies" of UNIX - making you a dramatically more effective programmer. Rave reviews for UNIX companion volume-- "I really like this book!!! Concepts that I only vaguely understood now make complete sense to me! The sample code and exercises are so good, they seem to clamp down on the concepts like a vise grip..." S. Lee Henry, Johns Hopkins University.

Interprocess Communications in Linux : The Nooks and CranniesFrom the Back Cover:
Raves for Gray's companion UNIX® volume!

The expert, example-rich guide to Linuxprocesses and IPC
Serious Linux software developers need a sophisticated understanding of processes, system level programming andinterprocess communication techniques. Now, John Shapley Gray, author of the widely praised Interprocess Communicationin UNIX, Second Edition, zeroes in on the core techniques Linux uses to manage processes and IPC. With exceptionalprecision and great clarity, Gray explains what processes are, how they're generated, how they access their environments,how they communicate—and how to use them to build robust, high-performance systems.
Gray presents dozens of standalone program examples; all compiled with the GNU C/C++ compiler 2.96 & 3.2, and fullytested on PC platforms running Red Hat Linux 7.3 & 8.0.
