Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

This is for i86 and x86_64 types but with a bit of poking around you can probably find a similar way to do this with other CPUs.
Note: This asm requires 'sigaction'. (See the test code. And bear in mind that this is not an attempt to create a full-blown system of signal handlers. Check the libc docs for 'sigaction' for ideas on how you can use something like this for a seed for a more extensive application.)
There used to be a lot of cool little programs for the...

C macros (spanning lines with backslash) to create 'lenient' aliases.
Type casting in C/C++ to override sometimes overly strict syntax checks.
Anyone that has used strdup() or strcat() knows how convenient those are. But when it comes to memory allocation and reallocation for other kinds of data the lack of simple standard mechanisms for this often leads to duplicated...
