The BeOS is the exciting new operating system designed natively for the Internet and digital media. Programmers are drawn to the BeOS by its many state-of-the-art features, including pervasive multithreading, a symmetric multiprocessing architecture, and an integrated multithreaded graphics system. The Be engineering team also built in many UNIX-like capabilities as part of a POSIX toolkit. Best of all, the BeOS runs on a variety of Intel architectures and PowerPC platforms and uses off-the-shelf hardware.

This book explores the BeOS from a POSIX programmer's point of view, providing a comprehensive and practical guide to porting UNIX and other POSIX-based software to the BeOS. BeOS: Porting UNIX Applications will help you move your favorite UNIX software to an environment designed from the ground up for high-performance applications.

* Supports BeOS Release 3

* Provides a step-by-step guide to the porting process from downloading the source code to installing the application

* Explains how to port off-the-shelf utilities like Emacs and Perl as well as your own programs and tools to the BeOS

* Offers a comprehensive POSIX reference for anyone who is porting or writing software for the BeOS

* Furnishes a simple catalog of tools and features available on the BeOS
