By Elderbear VINE VOICE on March 13, 2001
Format: Paperback
The biggest problem with this book is that it's softbound. It's not going to last at the rate I use it--and I'll have to order another one!
This book packages how to accomplish significant work using the QNX operating system. Including an annotated reading list, examples of how to use QNX utiliites, a discussion of programming philosophy and techniques, and footnoted code fragments, this book puts all the information you need between its covers.
Kolnick not only presents programming techniques and real-time strategies, but he also provides extensive documentation on how to *do* things with QNX. This is probably wasted on UNIX shell hackers, but it proved quite useful to me in my migration from the DOS world. My backup script and a script for creating module templates originally came straight out of these pages.
It's a nice package, crammed with 900 pages of info. Everything in one place. If you're wondering how to make sense out of QNX 4.x, this is *the* book for you.

Great for the novice or expert. It really has something for everyone. There is even a short device driver section.

Format: Paperback
QNX is a niche market and as a result there are few resources to choose from. In general, the vendor's own materials are adequate. This is the best on the market and by any standards an excellent reference tool. It is extremely well laid out and very well indexed.
