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

the best book I have seen on the environment in which a linux program runs is
Beginning Linux programming (in my case, 3rd edition, but I'm sure there's a fourth and maybe a fifth by now) Matthew/Stones, Wrox.

Having said that, while its a thick book, its really just the first few chapters that are 'stand-out'; the environment and shell scripting. If you want to program in some specific high level language, you'd certainly get a book on that language.

Have a look, because what suits me won't necessarily suit you.
