"Mac OS X Panther in a Nutshell, Second Edition": Getting Dirty Under the Hood of Mac OS X Panther
Sebastopol, CA--The new Mac OS X Panther in a Nutshell, Second Edition (O'Reilly, US $39.95) is a thorough overview of the sleek and powerful Mac OS X Panther operating system (Version 10.3)--from its Aqua interface right down to its BSD Unix core--and an all-purpose, dive-in-any-time reference guide for longtime Mac users and hardcore Unix users alike.
Chuck Toporek, Chris Stone, and Jason McIntosh encourage power users and system administrators to roll up their sleeves and get dirty as the authors show them "what happens under Mac OS X's hood (and how you might tinker with it)." They give readers everything they need to know about this remarkable operating system, including practical tools and advice they can put to use every day--things like configuring an ideal system, managing files, scripting, running Java applications, and Apple X11 distribution. The book includes the most complete Unix command reference found in print; each command and option has been painstakingly tested and checked against Panther. Even the manpages that ship with the system can't compete in accuracy with the thorough and systematic documentation found here.
Fully revised for Mac OS X Panther, the comprehensive Mac OS X Panther in
a Nutshell, Second Edition delivers:
The indispensable Mac OS X Panther in a Nutshell, Second Edition belongs on the desktop of any serious user who wants to know Mac OS X Panther inside and out.
