Linux: The Textbook

Now, NPO LPI-Japan has developed a "Linux Standard Textbook" for the purpose of using it for educating Linux engineers, released it on the Internet and offered it.This "Linux standard textbook" has been developed in response to requests from various ed-ucational institutions, for learning materials and learning environments to learn Linux from "basic".When publishing, it is published under the license (Creative Commons License) attached to "Linux standard textbook".This teaching material will be updated from time to time in order to respond to the latest technology trends. For text creation and updating, anyone can participate in the open discus-sion mailing list and wiki.URL of the mailing list -textLinux Standard Textbook Wiki

Linux: The Textbook

This textbook was made by using the word processor function of which is office suite of open source. I took charge of the style that was able to manage the format and the layout easily. Authors might have been able to concentrate on writing the manuscript. It would be greatly appreci-ated if could play a part of spread of OSS.

This textbook was made so that it can be a help for everyone who will study Linux/OSS and teachers who ardently undertaken them. It would be greatly appreciated if you send the im-pression and suggestions for improvement in order to be a better textbook by revising in a few times in the future.

This textbook can be used as teaching material freely except for profit-pursuing purpose (*). To use for profit-pursuing purpose needs a permission by LPI-Japan.Education using this material can be used basically even for profit-oriented education if you do not charge the price of this material itself. In that case, please do not hesitate to contact LPI-Japan secretariat.(*) Use for profit-making purposes stipulates as follows.To conduct a training or a lecture using copies of this teaching material at a commercial en-terprise, or to use for a fee-based seminar etc. at a non-profit organization.

Covering all the essential components of Unix/Linux, including process management, concurrent programming, timer and time service, file systems and network programming, this textbook emphasizes programming practice in the Unix/Linux environment. Systems Programming in Unix/Linux is intended as a textbook for systems programming courses in technically-oriented Computer Science/Engineering curricula that emphasize both theory and programming practice. The book contains many detailed working example programs with complete source code. It is also suitable for self-study by advanced programmers and computer enthusiasts.

Consider the information in the LPI Linux Essentials textbook on page 48 related to Open Source software (below the section marked note). Keeping these parameters and principles in mind research the features of three open source programs that are of interest to you and How they adhere to the principles referenced above. You should also answer the following questions iin the paper: How does the feature set compare to the commercial version of software, how does software usability compare between the versions, Is the software openly maintained etc

Among our practical goals will to learn to leverage existing Linux tools, to learn how to write correct code in C++, and how to achieve performance and efficiency. Like any programming language, you really teach yourself by doing, but we will present C++ and Linux in the required section. Assigned readings and homeworks will help you build up hands-on proficiency. C++ and Linux are easy to learn if you are comfortable in some other object oriented programming language like Java, so we will move quickly (this is not a course for people who struggle with programming or who have never seen object-oriented code and learned about data structures). You'll also be reading a famous C++ self-teaching textbook, written by the inventor of the language. This will begin early in the semester, so be ready to work hard in the first few weeks!

One of the unavoidable consequences of this activity is that most links to our course materials were broken. Today we have put back online the textbooks for two of the three courses whose next session will start on September 28th, 2015: Gnu/Linux Basic and Gnu/Linux Advanced (the textbook for the Open Networks course, that also starts on the same day, will be uploaded in the next days).

Please note that both textbooks are only used as starting points during our courses, where (also depending on what the students ask to work on!) we study and practice much more than what they contain. At the same time, while not completely up to date, these textbooks are both freely available under an open licenses, and can be useful as bases for studying Gnu/Linux alone.

Operating Systems is aimed at students at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, particularly those taking a module in a specialist computer systems or computer science course. It takes a new approach to operating systems, integrating three fundamental elements into one convenient and comprehensive text:- It presents the basic theory of operating system design and implementation in depth- It uses Linux as a running example throughout the text to expose students to the internals of operating systems- It gives a practical introduction to systems programming using the POSIX interfaceCurrently, such material has usually to be drawn from a variety of textbooks so Operating Systems provides a valuable resource for student and lecturer alike. The book aims to give the student a thorough knowledge of how operating systems work, and how they are implemented in practice. It develops a robust understanding of the concepts and building blocks which, although grounded in Linux, provide experience which will be transferable to other systems that the student will meet. Each chapter has a set of discussion questions and suggested reading to further stimulate thought. Whilst primarily written for the academic student, the material will also be of interest to users of Linux in the professional field who wish to increase their knowledge.John O'Gorman is a Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science and Information Systems at the University of Limerick. He has previously published a textbook on operating systems within the Palgrave Grassroots series.The Cornerstones of Computing series is dedicated to providing readers with rigorous and challenging texts that cover the breadth of computing science. The books published in this auspicious series are written by leading experts, reviewed by their peers, and offer a quality of text unsurpassed in today's market.Series Editors- Professor Richard Bird is Director of the Computing Laboratory and head of the Programming Research Group at Oxford University. He is also the author of several successful books, including the best-selling "Introduction to Functional Programming" ( Prentice Hall )- Professor Tony Hoare was formerly at Oxford and is now working at the Microsoft European Research HQ in Cambridge. He is the author of several textbooks, including "Communicating Sequential Processes" ( Prentice Hall )

Welcome to the course. You should begin reading the textbook, which is availableon-line at During the first week of the term,we will go over some of the introductory material in Chapter 1 fairly quickly. Although we will not cover all of Chapter 1 in class, you should definitely read theentire chapter.

We continue the study of objects and object-oriented programming.The reading for the week is Chapter 5,Section 2 andSection 3.We will discuss constructors, some of Java's standard classes, andthe general idea of object-oriented analysis and design.One of the classes that we will discuss, ArrayLists, is notcovered in the textbook untilSection 7.3.3An ArrayList can store a list of objects. You will use an ArrayListin lab on Thursday. 041b061a72
