C is what is the world is breathing today. And book on C are filling book shelves like believers converging on a holy bank. But here's a pilgrimage that's a different king if voyage. The C Odyssey .Written in a easy . riverting and readable style, the book touches height that few have reached, and offers insights that nobody has divined.
The C Odyssey is for those who'd like to learn C and for those who have learnt C. Garnished with smll programs . followed by in 'depth explanations, the journey takes the beginner by the hand.breaking him into the mold, taking him up to a point , and letting him free to explore on his own .The platform covered is wide and diverse. From C under DOS to C under UNIX,Windows, OS/2, and its interfaces with networking and relational databases. The Odyssey has a seven stop itinerary.Unserialized and distinct,but threaded by thin silken bonds to each other. The saga is a lengthy one. Through lands that have been visited separately before. Speaking the same language from different podiums,they abet an undisrupted flow of thought.
Odyssey 3 :Unix :The Open ,Boundless C
UNIX is the much maligned ,debated and devoured entity today.An operating system that was possible only through C,It has always been dealt with rather cursorily.
Most C Under UNIX books merely skimmed the surface, instead o cashin in on the opportunity to take s trip down to the philosophy of C,so easily reached through UNIX.
This volume takes you through the innards, questioning the gist o finternal data structures like stat, ustat ,suid 'bit control,file and record 'level locking,IPCs like pipes, named pipes,semaphores,shared memory and message queues.
The summit is reached with a fairly detailed inquiry into curses.The graphical face in UNIX,a very low profile GUI.

I found the price of Infibeam to be the cheapest compared to other online retailers. Unless you can go to a second hand market or one of Delhi's old markets, Infibeam is the place to buy this. My friend bought this from Delhi for Rs.220 so try getting it from Delhi otherwise this is the place. I got the delivery on 3rd day.
