Has anyone any recommendations on either book (both published by Prentice
Hall; I haven't seen them yet in my local bookstore; they both look
interesting, but I've seen some pretty poor books hyped even better ).  
Here's the promos on both:
Advanced UNIX (TM) Programming by Marc J. Rochkind.  Here's comprehensive,
practical advice on how and when to use - and not use system calls.  
265 pp. $32.95.

Systems Software Tools by Ted J. Biggerstaff.  This easy-to-follow, new
guide gives you the latest details on the C language and compiler, 
interrupt and communications hardware, terminal emulators, window 
interfaces, multitasking window systems, and concurrency structures.
250 pp. $28.95.

Thanx in advance

There has been some discussion of Unix technical books and people seem
to like Marc's book.  The only problem is that it is for SystemV.  Has
anyone written such a book specifically for 4.[23]?

I wonder what those of us running BSD systems other than 4.2BSD are to do.
(Take my 4.1BSD system--please!)  For portability, one should be programming
in what's common to System V and BSD.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO vs IBM.
