Hey all, hope all is well....I'm new to this site and I didn't see this topic posted anywhere but I was wondering if anybody can be so kind as to help me or point me in the right direction....so currently I'm studying Unix Programming..now my background is somewhat limited in the programming field and I'm still quite new so please pardon my ignorance... So I was wondering if anyone can reference any good books or any can give me any advice on the Unix call functions, I have Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment by Stevens and Rago already since we use it for class..For example our last quiz was we had to write a C++ program and use the Unix calls to have the program read the last 10 lines of some 3 files and the professor didn't want us to use tail call.. If someone can please help it would be must appreciated. Thanks.

Are you looking for information on POSIX system calls, which would be called from e.g. a C program? Or are you looking for a reference on standard UNIX command line utilities, which might be used in a Bash script?

To learn any kind of programming I've found it more useful to just read code than books. Books are good for theory, syntax, and starting out. But, IMO, the best programers write code, not books.
