ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

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 was asking in a very general way, and have not actually attempted anything yet, but I will try and explain more thouroughly:
I don't know if these are specifically kernel headers, but while installing my system I saw a file called something like "Multimedia header files" get copied across. I took this to mean that somewhere on the system is a header file I can either #include or put in the uses list (delphi), and then have acess to a variety of abstract commands such as playmedia, for example (just a guess!!). Also knowing a small amount of how linux is built up, there must be a few of these available to use in linux programming.
All I need to know is where to find them really, and I can probably work out the rest.
Also on a related note, can I link c object code (precompiled) into delphi?
Include GTK+ or QT header files and use those libraries classes and functions which will allow you to play music, etc. Linux does provide system header files that you can include in a C application but I'm not sure what they offer, not having used them myself.
Topic is posted quite a long time ago, but I would like to request for general documentation on using header files.
I'm developing one small app for my school and have a problem that can be solved using device mapper headerfile ( /usr/include/libdevmapper.h ). But since it's only core skeleton of the solution, I don't know how to use those functions and data-types that are defined in this header file. I peeked into some app's that take advantage of that specific library, but they are rather advance for me to get information I need.
I have a quite basic knowledge of C, but I'm willing to learn more, if I can have good documentation.
So if you have good URL in your bookmarks or know any good sites, that I can use. Please share!
