About The Book
Description:

In this book the author traces the popularity of the UNIX system throughout the computer industry. He describes internal algorithms and structures that form the basis of the operating system (kernel) and their relationship to the programmer interface. The text is a description of the general flow of various algorithms and most important, a description of how they interact with each other. Algorithms are presented in a C-like pseudo-code to aid the reader in understanding the natural language description and their names correspond to the procedure names in the kernel.
