Selection of Linux Programming Books

I keep bumping in to threads on the forum, asking how this or that terminal-command should be given. Often the answer is common knowledge for anyone with some decent experience in Linux-computing, but the same info could also easily be retrieved through Google via a simple search string.

But just as much as there seems to be a lack of knowledge in the Linux field, with some of the n900-users, it also seems that basic string operators for search engines are not being exploited and as a result people are left in the dark while trying to use this machine.

At the same time, all these threads are being answered (or not), creating redundancy and apart from the wiki page that was opened today on some terminal-commands for new users, the info is scattered across the board.

There for I thought it might be helpful to compile a selection of freely available books on the subjects of bash programming (the terminal), kernel organization and kernel programming. All books are or were available in the public domain and are copyrighted to their respective authors, mostly licenced GPL, unless stated otherwise.

The file itself is gz-tarred and is 12.9 Mb in size. It contains the following books:

I think this was the first linux related books I bought. I have the 1997 edition and I still often use it in preference to manpages especially when I need to use find
