Menu items and a hierarchy of pages allow us to navigate a very large document. On paper, the GNU C documentation runs to many hundreds of pages. The info system also contains its own help page in info form pages, of course. If we type Ctrl+H, we’ll be presented with some help that includes a tutorial on using info. The info program is available with many Linux distributions and can be installed on other UNIX systems. Summar y In this introductory chapter, we’ve looked at Linux programming and the things Linux holds in common with proprietary UNIX systems.
Because the shell is so important to Linux, we thought we should cover shell programming early. Throughout this chapter, we’ll be learning the syntax, structures, and commands available to you when you’re programming the shell, usually making use of interactive (screen-based) examples. These should serve as a useful synopsis of most of the shell’s features and their effects. We will also sneak a look at a couple of particularly useful command line utilities often called from the shell: grep and find.
EXIT_FAILURE EXIT_SUCCESS 1 0 /* Failing exit status. */ /* Successful exit status. h for the string EXIT_. h. Library Files Libraries are collections of precompiled functions that have been written to be reusable. Typically, they consist of sets of related functions to perform a common task. Examples include libraries of screen-handling functions (the curses and ncurses libraries) and database access routines (the dbm library). We’ll show you some libraries in later chapters. Standard system libraries are usually stored in /lib and /usr/lib.
