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.

I am new to inotify. I was trying to copy an example from a web tutorial but when I try to run it I get errors. To be more specific, I am trying to find out why the function 'read()' is being recorded as an error.
//This is the sample program to notify us for the file creation and file deletion takes place in “/tmp” directory
inotify.cxx: In function ‘int main()’:
inotify.cxx:16:28: warning: overflow in implicit constant conversion [-Woverflow]
inotify.cxx:27:41: error: ‘read’ was not declared in this scope
inotify.cxx:36:69: error: invalid types ‘char[int]’ for array subscript
inotify.cxx:37:14: error: ‘struct inotify_event’ has no member named ‘length’
If anyone has anything that could enlighten me I would be very grateful. Additionally, if anyone could point to a code snippet about inotify or else a site that gives detailed information about inotify I would be equally indebted.
