EPUB EBook by Brian Jepson

EBook Description

If you're one of the many Unix developers drawn to Mac OS X for its Unix core, you'll find yourself in surprisingly unfamiliar territory.

For a Unix developer, approaching Tiger from the Mac side is a bit like learning Russian by reading the Russian side of a Russian- EPUBEnglish dictionary.
