Developing Linux Applications

Developing Linux Applications Lowest new price: $15.00
Lowest used price: $1.99
List price: $34.99
Author: Eric Harlow
Brand: Brand: Sams Publishing

The goal of Developing Linux Applications is to provide a handbook for developers who are moving to the Linux platform. Linux Application Development covers the GTK+ library including GLIB and GDK using C. You'll find information covered no place else--information that Linux developers need in one comprehensive development book. All of the applications and code the author developed for the title have been released under the GPL.

In Developing Linux Applications with GTK+ and GDK, Eric Harlow provides a comprehensive explanation of how to program with the GIMP Toolkit (GTK+) and the Graphics Drawing Kit (GDK). These tools dramatically ease the process of building graphical user interfaces (GUIs) for Linux applications.

Harlow takes a didactic approach to his subject, revealing its details one at a time with a careful explanation of each. He first explains how to build a plain, one-window application and then shows how to enhance it with the help of event handlers, additional GTK+ widgets, and some little-used interface elements. He presents complete examples to illustrate concepts, including a calculator and simple word processing application. Along the way, he does a great job of clearing up often confusing tasks, like creating menu bars and managing layouts.

Before wrapping up, Harlow explains the GDK, which you can use to create custom graphical elements. In a particularly grin-inducing section, he reveals how to write a version of the classic arcade game Defender with the help of the GDK. There's also a segment on creating your own widgets, so you can craft a customized yet consistent look for the programs you create. --David Wall

Delphi/Kylix Database Development

Delphi/Kylix Database Development Lowest new price: $29.05
Lowest used price: $23.27
List price: $49.99
Author: Eric Harmon

The aim of this book is to teach cross-platform database programming to Delphi 6 or Kylix programmers. The book will assume the reader has a basic understanding of databases, such as what tables, rows, columns, fields, indexes, etc. are. It will also assume the reader has a working knowledge of Delphi and/or Kylix.

A thorough investigation of cross-platform database development using dbExpress will follow the introduction. Eric will cover topics ranging from setting up a database connection to single- and multi-tiered database applications. Along the way, he will present code snippets and small sample applications to illustrate the points being made. Also, a complete database application will be presented which will compile and run under either Delphi or Kylix, and will contain such discussed features as disconnected datasets.

Security Strategies in Linux Platforms and Applications covers every major aspect of security on a Linux system. Written by an industry expert, this book is divided into three natural parts to illustrate key concepts in the field. It opens with a discussion on the risks, threats, and vulnerabilities associated with Linux as an operating system using examples from Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Ubuntu. Part 2 discusses how to take advantage of the layers of security available to Linux--user and group options, filesystems, and security options for important services, as well as the security modules associated with AppArmor and SELinux. The book closes with a look at the use of both open source and proprietary tools when building a layered security strategy for Linux operating system environments. Using real-world examples and exercises, this useful resource incorporates hands-on activities to walk students through the fundamentals of security strategies related to the Linux system.

Learning Debian GNU/Linux

Learning Debian GNU/Linux Lowest new price: $46.28
Lowest used price: $4.74
List price: $34.95
Author: Bill McCarty
Brand: Brand: O'Reilly Media

Linux and Open Source are attracting unprecedented attention in the high tech world. Debian GNU/Linux is a remarkable demonstration of what the Open Source model can produce: Debian is an all volunteer organization, and their distribution contains only open-source software.This exciting new world can be intimidating for those whose primary computing experience is Microsoft Windows. In Learning Debian/GNU Linux, Bill McCarty has written a book for this new audience, aimed at introducing them to a Unix style operating system.Learning Debian GNU/Linux will guide any new user of Linux through the installing and use of Debian GNU/Linux, the entirely Open Source version of the Linux operating system. It demystifies Linux in terms familiar to Windows users and gives readers only what they need to start being successful users of Linux.Learning Debian GNU/Linux takes the reader step by step through the process of installing and setting up a Debian system, and provides a thorough but gentle introduction to the basics of using Debian GNU/Linux.Because the book is written specifically for the included CD, the reader needs nothing else to get started with this exciting new operating system.

Learning Debian GNU/Linux assumes only that its readers have a bit of Windows or Macintosh experience, are willing to learn, and aren't afraid to do a little experimenting. From there, it provides a complete introductory-level explanation of installing and using Linux and the GHU suite of tools, focusing on the Debian 2.1 distribution to the extent that it differs from other flavors of Linux. Because it ships with a bootable CD-ROM that contains Debian 2.1, this book represents a complete Linux starter kit (and a reasonably priced one, at that).

The author takes a patient approach to his subject, explaining key configuration files one line at a time and walking through important procedures, such as setting up a dial-up connection to the Internet. He's also remarkably liberal with troubleshooting ideas, frequently pausing to present lists of what might have gone wrong as a result of a recently explained procedures and suggesting solutions to each. He's also careful to explain aspects of the Unix universe (such as mounting devices and running a windowing system atop a kernel) that might be unfamiliar to people accustomed to more mainstream operating systems. Like any good Linux user, McCarty is quick to share his favorite utilities and explain how to use them. --David Wall

Topics covered: Installing Debian Linux and the GNU suite, installing and using the X windowing system, performing critical administration and management tasks (in graphical programs and via the bash shell), setting up a local area network (LAN), setting up the Apache Web server, and using the Debian package-management utilities.
