Linux is becoming the OS of choice for embedded system designers and engineers, due to its real-time power and flexibility. Written for engineers and students, Practical Linux Programming: Device Drivers, Embedded Systems, and the Internet is about designing and developing embedded systems, using Internet technology as a user interface. The book emphasizes the use of three different technologies for embedded system design and development: the Web, the Linux kernel, and SQL queries. From a software design point of view, device driver design, interprocess communication usage, Perl programming, shell programming, HTML tags, and SQL queries are covered in detail. The examples demonstrate the guidelines for designing an embedded system that requires interaction of different software modules and show how an operating system like Linux helps glue your software modules together. The book is presented as a tutorial for students and engineers who wish to learn the process of designing an embedded system application using Linux as the real-time operating system and the Internet as the user interface.Khan, Ashfaq A. is the author of 'Practical Linux Programming Device Drivers, Embedded Systems, an the Internet Device Drivers, Embedded Systems, and the Internet', published 2002 under ISBN 9781584500964 and ISBN 1584500964.
