The Solaris 9 Reference gives every Solaris user fast access to all the information they need to get results quickly. Solaris 9 Reference Volume One delivers more than 900 pages of rock-solid information that's never been delivered with more clarity, or organized for greater accessibility. Award-winning technical writer, Janice Winsor provides a complete, plain English reference guide to Solaris 9. She provides tested examples and clear, easy to understand explanations for the new LDAP-related commands, NCA (Network Cache Accelerator), PERL, Kerebos security commands, RBAC (Role-based Access Control), and RPM commands (for Linux interoperability). In addition, Solaris 9 Reference covers all of the key commands for Communication, File Management, System Status, Archiving, Printing, Text Processing, ShellProgramming, etc. But this book is much more than a massive reference list.
