  • No new posts Apache Desktop Reference
    PDF

    Most webmasters who must manage and maintain an Apache server installation are already familiar with Apache, either through the online available documentation from the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) or through the various Apache books on the market. The purpose of this book is to pro-vide a concise but, fairly complete reference to the various Apache knobs and levers with which the webmaster is confronted at compile time, conguration time, and runtime. Thus the audience of this book consists of webmasters who are already familiar with Apache, but who need a reference on a daily basis.

  • No new posts Thinking in Java, 1st edition
    HTML (ZIP)

    This book was designed with one thing in mind: the way people learn the Java language. Seminar audience feedback helped me understand which parts were difficult and needed illumination. In the areas where I got ambitious and included too many features all at once, I came to know – through the process of presenting the material – that if you include a lot of new features, you need to explain them all, and this easily compounds the student’s confusion. As a result, I’ve taken a great deal of trouble to introduce the features as few at a time as possible.

    The goal, then, is for each chapter to teach a single feature, or a small group of associated features, in such a way that no additional features are relied upon. That way you can digest each piece in the context of your current knowledge before moving on.

  • No new posts Thinking in C++, 2nd edition, Volume 1
    HTML (ZIP)

    Like any human language, C++ provides a way to express concepts. If successful, this medium of expression will be significantly easier and more flexible than the alternatives as problems grow larger and more complex.

    You can’t just look at C++ as a collection of features; some of the features make no sense in isolation. You can only use the sum of the parts if you are thinking about design, not simply coding. And to understand C++ this way, you mustunderstand the problems with C and with programming in general. This book discusses programming problems, why they are problems, and the approach C++ has taken to solve such problems.

    The completion of the C++ Standard also added a number of important new libraries, such as string and the containers and algorithms in the Standard C++ Library, as well as new complexity in templates. These and other more advanced topics have been relegated to Volume 2 of this book, including issues such as multiple inheritance, exception handling, design patterns, and topics about building and debugging stable systems.

  • No new posts GNU/Linux Command-Line Tools Summary
    HTML

    This document is an attempt to summarise the many command-line based tools available to a GNU/Linux based operating system. This guide is not a complete listing (I doubt it's possible to document all available programs), this document lists many tools which are available to GNU/Linux systems and which are, or can be useful to the majority of users.

    Each tool description provides a quick overview of it's function and some useful options for that individual tool.

    The tools listed that require a GUI, usually the X windowing system, are those listed in the Graphics Tools section. All other tools are completely command-line-based and do not require a GUI to run.

  • No new posts Linux device drivers
    PDF

    One of the many advantages of free operating systems, as typified by Linux, is that their internals are open for all to view. The operating system, once a dark and myste-rious area whose code was restricted to a small number of programmers, can now be readily examined, understood, and modified by anybody with the requisite skills. Linux has helped to democratize operating systems. The Linux kernel remains a large and complex body of code, however, and would-be kernel hackers need an entry point where they can approach the code without being overwhelmed by com-plexity. Often, device drivers provide that gateway.

  • No new posts Self-service Linux
    PDF

    The biggest factor in a company's decision to go with Linux is overcoming the support issues. Adopting Linux successfully means taking on a different approach to support. Since Linux is open source, there are different methods to get the support that companies need. This includes deeper skills on how to investigate problems, how to get help from the open source community (i.e.how to ask for help on usenet) and how to resolve problems in-house without the extra cost of a consultant. This book should be an essential part of every company's Linux adoption plan to keep the total cost of ownership (TCO)down and improve the ROI of their Linux strategy. It is also a book tha tadvanced Linux professionals running their own Linux systems will be able to use to troubleshoot.

  • No new posts Beginning PHP 5.3
    HTML

    This book is intended for anyone starting out with PHP programming. If you’ve previously worked in another programming language such as Java, C#, or Perl, you’ll probably pick up the concepts in the earlier chapters quickly; however, the book assumes no prior experience of programming or of building Web applications.

    That said, because PHP is primarily a Web technology, it will help if you have at least some knowledge of other Web technologies, particularly HTML and CSS.

    Many Web applications make use of a database to store data, and this book contains three chapters on working with MySQL databases.

  • No new posts The Complete FreeBSD, 4th edition
    PDF

    FreeBSD is a high-performance operating system derived from the Berkeley Software Distribution(BSD), the version of UNIX developed at the University of California at Berkeley between 1975 and 1993. FreeBSD is not a UNIX clone. Historically and technically, it has greater rights than UNIX System V to be called UNIX. Legally, it may not be called UNIX, since UNIX is nowaregistered trade mark of The Open Group.

    This book is intended to help you get FreeBSD up and running on your system and to familiarize you with it. It can’t do everything, but plenty of UNIX books and online documentation are available, and a large proportion of them are directly applicable to FreeBSD. In the course of the text, I’ ll repeatedly point you to other documentation.

  • No new posts Vim Recipes: A cookbook for the Vim text editor
    PDF

    The Vim text editor is perhaps as famous for its learning curve as it is for its contributions to productivity. Vim isn't "intuitive" in the way other applications claim to be. You cannot use it by simply replicating the actions you perform with a word processor, by clicking on menu items aimlessly until you achieve your desired effect. But this is by design. The major strength of Vim is that it does things differently to magnificent effect . It permanently alters the way in which you regard text editors and software in general. And that is why, in 2009, I am putting the finishing touches to a free book about a text editor whose ancestry can be traced back to 1976.

    PDF

    This book is aimed at readers who are new to Debian GNU/Linux. It assumes no prior knowledge of GNU/Linux or other Unix-like systems, but it does assume very basic general knowledge about computers and hardware; you should know what the basic parts of a computer are, and what one might use a computer to do.

    In general, this tutorial tries to help you understand what happens inside a Debian system. The idea is to empower you to solve new problems and get the most out of your computer. Thus there's plenty of theory and fun facts thrown in with the ``How To'' aspects of the manual.

    This book owes its existence to the collaboration made possible by the Internet and the free software movement. Its three authors—a college professor, a high school teacher, and a professional programmer—have yet to meet face to face, but we have been able to work closely together and have been aided by many wonderful folks who have donated their time and energy to helping make this book better.

    We think this book is a testament to the benefits and future possibilities of this kind of collaboration, the framework for which has been put in place by Richard Stallman and the Free Software Foundation.

  • No new posts Version Control with Subversion
    PDF

    Subversion is a free/open source version control system (VCS). That is, Subversion manages files and directories, and the changes made to them, over time. This allows you to recover older versions of your data or examine the history of how your data changed. In this regard, many people think of a version control system as a sort of “time machine.”

    Subversion can operate across networks, which allows it to be used by people on different computers. At some level, the ability for various people to modify and manage the same set of data from their respective locations fosters collaboration. Progress can occur more quickly without a single conduit through which all modifications must occur. And because the work is versioned, you need not fear that quality is the trade-off for losing that conduit—if some incorrect change is made to the data, just undo that change.
