The Design and Implementation of the FreeBSD Operating System

The long awaited update to ``The Design and Implementation of the 4.4BSD Operating System'' is now in final production by Addison-Wesley and is expected to be available for sale in early August 2004 (ISBN 0-201-70245-2). Marshall Kirk McKusick has teamed up with George Neville-Neil to write the definitive work on the internals of the FreeBSD 5.2 operating system.

The 700 page book discusses both philosophical and design issues, as well as details of the actual implementation. Often, the discussion starts at the system-call level and descends into the kernel. Tables and figures are used to clarify data structures and control flow. Pseudocode similar to the C language displays algorithms.
