The Linux Programming Interface (TLPI) is the definitive guide to the Linux and UNIX programming interface—the interface employed by nearly every application that runs on a Linux or UNIX system.

In this authoritative work, Linux programming expert Michael Kerrisk provides detailed descriptions of the system calls and library functions that you need in order to master the craft of system programming, and accompanies his explanations with clear, complete example programs.

You'll find descriptions of over 500 system calls and library functions, and more than 200 example programs, 88 tables, and 115 diagrams. You'll learn how to:
– Read and write files efficiently
– Use signals, clocks, and timers
– Create processes and execute programs
– Write secure programs
– Write multithreaded programs using POSIX threads
– Build and use shared libraries
– Perform interprocess communication using pipes, message queues, shared memory, and semaphores
– Write network applications with the sockets API

While The Linux Programming Interface covers a wealth of Linux-specific features, including epoll, inotify, and the /proc file system, its emphasis on UNIX standards (POSIX.1-2001/SUSv3 and POSIX.1-2008/SUSv4) makes it equally valuable to programmers working on other UNIX platforms.

The Linux Programming Interface is the most comprehensive single-volume work on the Linux and UNIX programming interface, and a book that's destined to become a new classic.

About the Author
Michael Kerrisk has been using and programming UNIX systems for more than 20 years, and has taught many week-long courses on UNIX system programming. Since 2004, he has maintained the man-pages project (http://www.kernel.org/doc/man-pages/), which produces the manual pages describing the Linux kernel and glibc programming APIs. He has written or co-written more than 250 of the manual pages and is actively involved in the testing and design review of new Linux kernel-userspace interfaces. Michael lives with his family in Munich, Germany.

Timekeeping System and Timesheet Processing

Paper timesheets daily time record is to track when employees start and end their work hours a day, but today's technologies used biometric finger scanner or other digital device to record daily time attendance In/Out. read more »

Delegate work to your employees and get more productive right away with a smart self-service dashboard user account for every employee. Modern HR management tools can help you remove the daily routine task that the system can handle it automatically and easy. read more »

Broken Time Schedule Data Entry and Approval Form

Broken time schedule is not suitable on automating work distribution need module data entry to handle the accurate computation that system get the computed hours during the timesheet processing. The logic of computation is time difference for every time in/out entry that excess of regular 8 hours is overtime work. The approver decide if the overtime work is required to deduct 1 hour OT hour lunch break or OTND lunch break before it approve. read more »
