UNIX Network Programming, Volume 1: The Sockets Networking API, Third Edition
"Everyone will want this book because it provides a great mix of practical experience, historical perspective, and a depth of understanding that only comes from being intimately involved in the field. I've already enjoyed and learned from reading this book, and surely you will too."
--Sam LefflerThe classic guide to UNIX networking APIs... now completely updated!
To build today's highly distributed, networked applications and services, you need deep mastery of sockets and other key networking APIs. One book delivers comprehensive, start-to-finish guidance for building robust, high-performance networked systems in any environment: UNIX Network Programming, Volume 1, Third Edition.
Building on the legendary work of W. Richard Stevens, this edition has been fully updated by two leading network programming experts to address today's most crucial standards, implementations, and techniques. New topics include:
The authors also update and extend Stevens' definitive coverage of these crucial UNIX networking standards and techniques:
Since 1990, network programmers have turned to one source for the insights and techniques they need: W. Richard Stevens' UNIX Network Programming. Now, there's an edition specifically designed for today's challenges--and tomorrow's.
The late W. RICHARD STEVENS was the original author of UNIX Network Programming, First and Second Editions, widely recognized as the classic texts in UNIX networking. BILL FENNER is Principal Technical Staff Member at AT&T Labs in Menlo Park, CA, specializing in IP multicasting, network management, and measurement. He is one of the IETF's Routing Area Directors, responsible for approving all routing-related documents that get published as RFCs. ANDREW M. RUDOFF, Senior Software Engineer at Sun Microsystems, specializes in networking, operating systems internals, file systems, and high availability software architecture.
With the updated third edition, this book keeps getting better and better with age.
