|(publication)||Devil Book - "The Design and Implementation of the 4.3BSD
Unix Operating System", by Samuel J. Leffler, Marshall Kirk
McKusick, Michael J. Karels, and John S. Quarterman
(Addison-Wesley Publishers, 1989, ISBN 0-201-06196-1).|
The standard reference book on the internals of BSD Unix. So called because the cover has a picture depicting a little devil (a visual play on daemon) in sneakers, holding a pitchfork (referring to one of the characteristic features of Unix, the "fork(2)" system call).
