Sample text

If this did not work for you, make sure that the C compiler is installed on your system. For example, many Linux distributions have an install option called Software Development that we should select. Since this is the first program we’ve run, it’s a good time to point something out. The hello program will probably be in your home directory. If PATH doesn’t include a reference to your home directory, the shell won’t be able to find hello. Furthermore, if one of the directories in PATH contains another program called hello, that program will be executed instead.

For the rest of the book, we’ll mainly concentrate on C. We’ll direct our attention mostly toward exploring the Linux programming interfaces from the perspective of the C programmer. We will assume knowledge of the C programming language. Linux Programs Linux applications are represented by two special types of files: executables and scripts. exe files. Scripts are collections of instructions for another program, an interpreter, to follow. cmd files, or interpreted BASIC programs. Linux doesn’t require executables or scripts to have a specific filename or any extension whatsoever.

Our program requires major Version 6. Other UNIX systems will make similar arrangements for access to shared libraries. Refer to your system documentation for details. In many ways, shared libraries are similar to dynamic-link libraries used under Windows. LIB files included in the program executable. Getting Help The vast majority of Linux systems are reasonably well documented with respect to the system programming interfaces and standard utilities. This is true because, since the earliest UNIX systems, programmers 13 Chapter 1 have been encouraged to supply a manual page with their applications.
