System V Transport Layer Interface-should I learn it?


Im reading a book on network programming in unix(tho I use Linux OS) and there are two big chapters on Berkeley sockets and the other one on System V Transport Layer Interface(TLI).

I know I need Berkeley sockets,but Im not shure if I must know TLI also.I looked briefly trough TLI chapter but I couldn't figure out if TLI is alternative to berkeley sockets or something required to know

So must I learn TLI also or not?
Is it just an alternative to berkeley sockets?
How often is TLI used in modern day network programming?

any help would be welcomed
