1. I don't have my copy handy to check, but what about Donnovan's 1975
"Systems Programming" book, from McGraw-Hill? I recall it as
talking about many useful things most operatign systems book
2. A couple of years ago I reviewed Gintarias R. Gircys,
"Understanding and Using COFF" Newton, MA: O'Reilly & Associates, 1988.
for computing reviews. It was a pretty readable book about linking
with one particular object file format.
3. Dan Klein, formerly at CMU, started a book for Prentice-Hall on the
folklore about computers, operating systems, etc. that nobody
writes down anywhere. I reviewed his chapter on linkers; it was
pretty good. Unfortunately (a) when I saw Dan last September he
said the book was languishing because of other projects (b) I've
lost any e-mail or forwarding addresses I might have had for him.
If anyone out there knows where to find him, let me know - and tell
him to go back to writing his book!
