This book shows small code samples making Learning Perl easy


when i picked up this book i didn't know any "real" programming languages - heck, i didn't even know how to write a shell script! in two months this book gave me the knowledge to create applications and report generators for my employer, quickly earning me a promotion. it's real easy to gain practical knowledge from this introduction to perl due to the effective layout. some of the subjects aren't covered in very much detail, but the reader is always given sources for additional (free) information. reading some of the silly commentaries posted here; if you cannot grasp what this book hands you, perhaps you should make the move to customer support or marketing and leave programming to the cognitive specimens.

Title: Programming with POSIX(R) Threads
Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional
Authors: David R. Butenhof
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Comprehensive and well-written


Butenhof covers all the details of programming the pthreads library. The book begins with a lucid and carefully presented discussion about the general concepts behind threading, such as locking, synchronization, race conditions, and data sharing. Threads can be a bit intimidating, but Butenhof's presentation makes threaded programming, and thinking about asynchronous design in general, much more manageable. His coverage of the library itself is very accurate and clear. The book helpfully contains a complete reference of the pthreads library. Another worthwhile feature is the discussion and implementation of several common design patterns for multithreaded programming. I have found myself modifying and reusing these patterns again and again. If you find yourself needing to program with the pthreads library, Butenhof will not lead you astray. Highly recommended.

Bood information for 2003 NLB


This book was pretty helpful to get a Windows Server 2003 (and a 2000) cluster off the ground. This book covered everything you needed to know from Hardware to Software. To do major design work to include App Center 2000 or any other service based solution, you would have to augment this book with other material, but to just get a NLB or regular cluster up off the ground that functions and be able to troubleshoot it, this is your book.
