For undergraduate, introductory/ intermediate-level courses in UNIX Operating Systems. May also be useful in Computer Operating System and C Language Under UNIX courses.

A true text/tutorial-rather than an operating system manual or UNIX reference-this volume covers the necessary topics for the UNIX user to function independently and perform most of the everyday, routine tasks, and develops a firm foundation for exploring more advanced topics. To ensure that students develop a solid understanding-and appreciation-of where UNIX fits into to the operating system mix, it covers operating system concepts in general before focusing on UNIX and the UNIX environment.
