UNIX is a computer operating system, originally developed by AT&T back in the year 1969. Initially, UNIX was coded in the assembly language. Later, in the year 1973, it was again coded in C language to help future enhancements and provide better support for different hardware, making UNIX a truly robust, cross platform operating system. Many successful operating systems of today’s world are based on the UNIX platform. Some of those operating systems include the famous Mac OS X, iOS, different flavours of Linux, HP-UX, and Solaris. Targeted for both the experienced and the relatively new professionals of the UNIX field, this book, UNIX: The Complete Reference, covers all the concepts that a professional needs to know to work in UNIX.
