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.

Creating an extensible mid-level parser that makes sense in C.
Looking at BNF-like syntax and C syntax similarities.
Tossing flex as far as we can throw it. While its still burning.
The file set here isn't 'finalized' in any way but it's been stable for a few days. These examples are therefor not about THIS set of functions but about parsing in general, although this file set will very likely be part of the mc2 parsing system...
We've resurrected some dead code that was pretty ugly but the only worse MESS (officially sanctioned, no less) than STL that we've ever seen is the spaghetti in lex/flex output. -- The Computer Mad Science Dept.
...what would ANY good Computer Mad Scientist do in a situation like this?
Behind the scenes, some of the more complex tools are getting incorporated into lq-qt-mc2. Should have an upload in a day or two. lq-find will kock your socks off.. now tuned up and ready for the big time. :-) v. 3.0.14 coming soon.
Create a shortcut with a shortcut icon, directories - OK!
Another new.<utility> using the mc2 extras demo (env-replace)
Revisiting the utility to create a self extractor using base64
A couple of ways to work around unwanted C++ compiler warnings.
STL is a freaking nighmare to trace in a debugger so it's not too easy to tell what goes on in them but one thing became quite clear and that is that iterators are generic pointer types internally, which makes sense since STL needs to deal with so many different types.
