Linux Systems Programming (Jonathan Macey)

This book focuses on writing code that directly interacts with the kernel and core system libraries, including the shell, text editor, compiler, debugger, core utilities, and system daemons.

This type of code is called kernel-interface code. Linux System Programming concentrates on everything above the kernel, where programs like Apache, bash, cp, vim, Emacs, GCC, gdb, Glibc, ls, mv, and X exist. The majority of Unix and Linux code is still created at the system level.

This book is a great teaching resource for any programmer because it was primarily written for engineers who wanted to write (better) at a low level. Even with the trend toward high-level development, whether through managed code (C#) or web software (such as PHP), someone still needs to write the C# virtual machine and the PHP interpreter. Understanding the fundamental internals of Linux System Programming helps you write better code, regardless of where it is placed in the stack. You frequently need to understand your operating system's system calls and kernel behavior in order to debug high-level code.

With Linux System Programming, you can examine Linux in-depth from both a theoretical and practical standpoint as you go over a variety of programming subjects.
