Unix for the Hyperimpatient free pdf The hypertext version of the popular handbook, UNIX for the Impatient, Second Edition, including navigation tools and UNIX software. UNIX for the Hyper-Impatient is a CD-ROM version of the current edition of UNIX for the Impatient -- an in-depth, comprehensive guide to UNIX. Clear, concise, and readable, the original book was written for the technically oriented UNIX user who doesn't want to wade through verbose tutorials but isn't already an expert. UNIX for the Hyper-Impatient contains the entire text of the original book together with the powerful yet easy-to-use DynaText hypertext system. The DynaText software will run on a variety of UNIX systems (with Motif)*, as well as on Microsoft Windows and Macintosh. Valuable features include links for retrieving the syntax and options of any UNIX command as well as its full description- a dynamically expandable table of contents- links for tracing cross-references- search operations over either section headings or the entire text using combinations of terms, phrases, nearby words, or wildcards- facilities for the reader to add personal annotations and hyperlinks- and the ability to save or print excerpts of the book. The CD-ROM also includes the Slackware distribution of Linux, a free but thoroughly professional version of UNIX, and the full set of files for the Emacs editor. UNIX for the Hyper-Impatient is based on the IEEE POSIX.2 Standard now widely adopted by UNIX vendors and implementors. Important System V, BSD, and GNU variations and enhancements are also presented. Topics include user utilities, shells, the vi editor and other standard editors, the GNU Emacs editor, Internet access tools, the awk language, the X Window System, and system administration from the user's perspective. Linux version of the DynaText browser is not yet available. 0201419912B04062001
