This book is closely modeled after the legendary texts of Stevens, but is Solaris centric. Weighing in at a whopping 1,248 pages it is complete and doesn’t have those “this was probly useful in 1978” dusty corners that other texts suffer from. This book includes everything you’d expect and a whole lot more. Best of all for all of us who aren’t experts (isn’t that the point?), all the code examples are complete!
This book is just in time for DTrace and all those juicy new Truss improvements. A big hand to Sun Press, 3 essential guides everyone should now have include “Solaris Systems Programming”, “Solaris Internals”, and the much overlooked “Solaris Boot Camp”. Now back to work.
