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.

Hello, I'm just learning network programming and I've made a test program that checks the latest versions of various software. I'm using the HTTPSession (reinvented the wheel on purpose) to retreive webpages, but the time it takes is excessive. I find that it would read a few hundred bytes, hang, read a some more until it's done. I ran this program under both Windows and Linux to see if was due to ip implementation differences, but in both cases, using BufferedReader to read a socket is much faster than GetPage. I also suspected that this problem could be because I'm using the latest Java Mustang releases. Any ideas what the problem is?
while ((bytes_read = m_in.read(buffer)) != -1)
// fixme: this will not work for non ascii encoded web pages
// and very bad in terms of memory fragmentation
for (int i = 0; i < bytes_read; ++i)
string += (char)buffer[i];
private Socket m_socket;
private PrintStream m_out;
private InputStream m_in;
