If you're a developer or system administrator lured to Mac OS X because of its Unix roots, you'll quickly discover that performing Unix tasks on a Mac is different than what you're accustomed to. Mac OS X for Unix Geeks serves as a bridge between Apple's Darwin OS and the more traditional Unix systems. This clear, concise guide gives you a tour of Mac OS X's Unix shell in both Leopard and Tiger, and helps you find the facilities that replace or correspond to standard Unix utilities.

You'll learn how to perform common Unix tasks in Mac OS X, such as using Directory Services instead of the standard Unix /etc/passwd and /etc/group, and you'll be able to compile code, link to libraries, and port Unix software using either Leopard and Tiger. This book teaches you to:

  • Navigate the Terminal and understand how it differs from an xterm
  • Use Open Directory (LDAP) and NetInfo as well as Directory Services
  • Compile your code with GCC 4
  • Port Unix programs to Mac OS X with Fink
  • Use MacPorts to install free/open source software
  • Search through metadata with Spotlight's command-line utilities
  • Build the Darwin kernel

And there's much more. Mac OS X for Unix Geeks is the ideal survival guide to tame the Unix side of Leopard and Tiger. If you're a Unix geek with an interest in Mac OS X, you'll soon find that this book is invaluable.


如果你是一位開發人員或系統管理員,因為 Mac OS X 具有 Unix 根源而被吸引,你很快就會發現在 Mac 上執行 Unix 任務與你習慣的方式不同。《Mac OS X for Unix Geeks》作為蘋果的 Darwin OS 和傳統 Unix 系統之間的橋樑。這本清晰、簡潔的指南將帶你遊覽 Leopard 和 Tiger 中的 Mac OS X 的 Unix shell,並幫助你找到取代或對應標準 Unix 工具的設施。

你將學習在 Mac OS X 中執行常見的 Unix 任務,例如使用 Directory Services 代替標準的 Unix /etc/passwd 和 /etc/group,並且你將能夠使用 Leopard 和 Tiger 編譯代碼、連接到庫並移植 Unix 軟件。這本書教你:

- 導航終端並了解它與 xterm 的不同
- 使用 Open Directory (LDAP) 和 NetInfo 以及 Directory Services
- 使用 GCC 4 編譯你的代碼
- 使用 Fink 將 Unix 程序移植到 Mac OS X
- 使用 MacPorts 安裝免費/開源軟件
