bharat> Syed, It depends on what you are working on SysV derived

Well, that brings me to a question as to from where Linux is derived ?
SVR4 or BSD or a combination of both.
bharat> be aware that it does not discuss the code in a line by

That is what I am not looking for anyway.

I guess I understand that being in IBM myself :-)
bharat> Any decent company worth its name (and involved in unix)

Well, I am resorting to LIP as the last resort. I have already done
what you have suggested. :-)
bharat> definitely arrange for one. As arun said you need to be

Maybe I think Bach is the first place which I should start from, then
go on to Uresh Vahalia.

Well, Bharat. I would not mind paying for the book if it is in print and
I am not asking it so that I can keep it forever. I am not looking out
to deprive anyone of the "precious" book and I ain't forcing anyone.
Linux poses a real challenge for those with a taste for late-night
hacking (and/or conversations with God).
