Linux IP Stacks Commentary: Guide to Gaining Insider's Knowledge on the IP Stacks of the Linux Code
Author: Stephen T. Satchell
Publisher: Coriolis Group Books
Release Date: February 11, 2000
Adopts and extends the method used by the famous Lion's Commentary on Unix, which still is a much sought after title even 20 years after publication. Continual Web updates available. Uses a horizontal format (11" x 8 3/8" trim size) which allows for exhaustive cross-referencing, space for easy-to-read columns of code, and the book to stay flat while open. Over 42,000 lines of code are excerpted and explained in detail. Includes extensive cross-referencing and architectural flow charts to enhance understanding of the structure of the code. Linux IP Stacks Commentary is currently the only commentary-style book available on the Linux IP stacks, and it covers the 2.0.34 version of the Linux kernel.
