    unix programming book - old edition

    Hi all,

    I just got the book
    Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment
    from the library, and it says that it is the 1993 edition & a 2001 reprint

    So, will it be useful for me when I am programming on my (Fedora Core 4) Linux machine?

    any advice?

    thank you

    Probably yes. Concept are the same from all the time... Maybe, when you'll program in Linux or other system you'll find some differencies, but don't worry, because other specific documentation will help you.
    When using Windows, have you ever told "Ehi... do your business?"

    I also have Fedora 4 and old book


    I am using Fedora Core 4 now, but believe me or not I started to learn programming from an old unix book....

    See, once you learn the basics of any programming, the rest are just the same., slight differences but you can just get used to them...if you have strong basics.

    I think it is good for you that it is a old book; see what best you can get out of it.

    Also the benefit is that you will be able to know what developments have occured over the new one...

    So just enjoy them...
