Programmers Suplementary Documents
These are all the PSDs that come with the standard FreeBSD 2.1.0
distribution (I think). Some of these may not strictly be useful for
unix network hacking.
WWW browsers will probably have problems viewing these 'man page style' text
files, download rather than view.
The descriptions are BSD's, not mine (appart from the ones in brakets).
- Make: A Program for Maintaining Computer Programs. Indispensable tool for
making sure large programs are properly compiled with minimal effort (154K).
- gprof: a Call Graph Execution Profiler. A program to show the call graph
and execution time of a program. Indispensable aid for improving the running
time of almost everything (40K).
- Screen Updating and Cursor Movement Optimization. Describes the curses
package, an aid for writing screen-oriented, terminal-independent programs
- An Introductory 4.4BSD Interprocess Communication Tutorial. How to write
programs that use the Interprocess Communication Facilities of 4.4BSD
(they mean sockets) (90K).
- An Advanced 4.4BSD Interprocess Communication Tutorial. The reference
document (with some examples) for the Interprocess Communication Facilities
(they mean sockets) (141K).
- RPCGEN Programming Guide. Manual for the ONC RPC stub-generating program,
provided by Sun Microsystems (53K).
- Remote Procedure Call Programming Guide. A tutorial introduction to
programming the ONC RPC system, provided by Sun Microsystems (119K).
- External Data Representation: Sun Technical Notes. Technical details about
the design of the XDR component of ONC RPC, provided by Sun Microsystems (73K).
- External Data Representation Standard: Protocol Specification. The Internet
RFC specifying ONC XDR, provided by Sun Microsystems
(duplicated in the rfc section of the unix/net/hack page) (48K).
- Remote Procedure Calls: Protocol Specification. The Internet RFC specifying
ONC RPC, RFC 1050, as provided by Sun Microsystems.
(duplicated in the rfc section of the unix/net/hack page) (66K).
- Network File System: Version 2 Protocol Specification. The Internet RFC
specifying NFS, as provided by Sun Microsystems. Note that the (BSD?)
NFS-compatible filesystem itself, while compliant with this specification,
was not provided by Sun.
(duplicated in the rfc section of the unix/net/hack page) (50K).
- (contents file where the above descriptions were taken from, also contains
descriptions of some other interesting sounding PSDs that I don't have) (7K).
- (copyright messages etc) (6K).
