Unix for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger - a Book

book cover

A very complete beginner's guide to Unix.

This is the completely revised, second edition, for Mac OS X 10.4.

Mac OS X is the greatest advance in desktop computing since the original Mac interface - only this time the advance is under the hood. OS X is a version of Unix. Unix is the industrial-stength operating system that runs most of the Internet servers such as Amazon, Google, Technorati, and Yahoo, and now you have a full-fledged version of Unix in your Macintosh.

This book assumes no prior Unix experience and yet provides more detail than any other beginning Unix book of which I am aware.

I hope you will check out this book and if you are an experienced Unix user, pass it on to the beginners in your neighborhood.

I have put a pre-publication version of Appendix A - Darwin-Only Unix Commands on this web site. The page lists command-line programs that are found only or almost only on Darwin, the Open Source version of Unix used in Mac OS X.
