This book offers a unique and carefully integrated combination of
principles and practice. While the usual principles are covered in
detail, the book also describes a small, but real UNIX-like operating
system: MINIX. It shows how it works and illustrates the principles
behind it. By using MINIX, students learn principles and then can
apply them in hands-on system design projects.
Still the only operating systems textbook that first explains the relevant principles, then shows how they apply to real systems by using a Unix-like operating system as a detailed example.
Relevant sections of MINIX code are described in detail in most chapters.
Provides problems at the end of each chapter, with separate solutions manual for the instructor.
NEWThe principles material has been updated to reflect new developments in the field.
NEWThe MINIX system has been updated to run on 386, 486, and standard Pentium-based machines, and is based on the international POSIX standard.
NEWSimulators for running MINIX on other systems are now available.
NEWA CD-ROM included in each book contains all the MINIX source codes and a full-listing, as well as the simulators.
NEWMINIX has been extended to include networking based in TCP/IP. The full source code of the MINIX TCP/IP implementation is included on the CD-ROM.
