The book is here

Yesterday afternoon I got two copies of the Solaris Application Programming book. I'd been on edge for quite a few days, since they were supposed to be printed on the 21st. I've skimmed through it and it looks fine (I recently read this, old, post on Jim Mauro's blog about the first edition of Solaris Internals, so I was expecting the worst!).


Comments:

Example 7.8:
$ cc -o myapp -L. -R$ORIGIN/../lib -lmylib myapp.c
seems it should be '-R$ORIGIN/../lib'.

Example 7.14: the format of the source code is a little mess, it's not clear to see there is a 'sin' routine in the code.

BTW, I'm translating ch7 to Chinese, which sponsored by SDN China. Really a great book.

Yes, to both your comments. The source code appears to have had a couple of blank lines deleted at some point. It's great that you pointed this out, since it should be correctable for the next printing.

Thanks for the translation!

Darryl.
