I'd like a good Linux Programming book


Hi

I'm looking for some book recommendations (on-line or "dead tree" variety).

I'm a fairly experienced programmer, and reasonably familiar with using Linux, but I have no Linux programming experience beyond the odd shell script and a few simple Python programs. I'm looking for a good book on general Linux programming, particularly C and/or C++ - preferably one that doesn't spend too much time teaching me programming basics but focuses on the Linux related aspects, and preferably one that is reasonably up to date.

In case it makes a difference, I'm more a CLI/Emacs type of person than an IDE user by choice, so books that approach it from that angle would be preferred.

Can anyone give me any recommendations?

Thanks

Andy B

Linux Programming by example, by arnold robbins is an excellent book for learning how to program linux. It requires you know C programming and explains everything, directory structure, threads, kernel info, boot process, etc. Check out amazon.com for reviews of it.
