Subject: [LIP] 

i've started with stevens vol1 (networking apis). but i've realized that i
do not have a previous experience programming in linux.
can some of you suggest some books for the same. i did read tomswan's gnu
c++ for linux, but it has nothing different from the "usual" c++.
i mean where do i read about things like fork, ioctl exec et. al.

also what toolkit do you suggest for building guis in linux. my current
refernce on perl does not mention anything about guis.
please mention some good books for the same, online tutorials as i have
found of now are not very satisfying.

hoping for a reply soon
