Subject: Chapters 3 and 4 of "The Art of Unix Programming" Released

Many of you know that I have been working on a book which is an attempt
to capture much of the unwritten engineering lore of the Unix community.
I welcome comments and feedback on "The Art of Unix Programming"; like
"The New Hacker's Dictionary", it's a book that can only achieve its goals
by reflecting and focusing the wisdom of our entire community.

I have released Chapters 3 and 4 of the draft of "The Art of Unix Programming"
at the usual location:

        http://www.tuxedo.org/~esr/writings/taoup/

Chapter 1 has two new sections: "What Unix Got Wrong" and "Flexibility
In Depth".  Chapter 2 has minor revisions.
