    What do you recommend for a semi-advanced book on C in linux. My first book was "Beginning C Second Edition" by Ivor Horton, and the guys at They don't really have a follow up to the book, and I was wanting to get into handling sockets and the sort. Thanks for the help

    sockets and linux with semi-advanced don't fit together. The book you want is Linux Socket Programming by Example you can also push for a little bit more at amazon and also get Advanced Linux Programming

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Linux programming bible. This book covers many things including sockets, fifo's, pipes, semaphores, how to compile a shared library and similar 'loose ends'. It doesn't cover threads though, but you should be able to understand that from the man pages and google.

    A non-linux book that I would also recomend is mastering algorithms in C. This book covers data structures like linked lists, hash tables and binary trees, as well as a few simple algorithms such as LZ77 compression and DES and RSA encryption.

    I would recommend "Unix Network Programming" by W. Richard Stevens.
    (note that it is also for any Unix-like systems, not only Linux)
    slackware 10.0; kernel 2.6.7
    gcc 3.4.0; glibc 2.3.2; vim editor
    migrating to freebsd 5.4
