There are many books out there that cover the subject. Let me list a
1. Linux Programming by Example (by Kurt Wall)
2. Linux Programming Unleashed 2nd Edition (by Kurt Wall)
What I recommend especially if you like coffee:
Find your favorite technical bookstore serving coffee and browse the
through the literature on Linux Programming.
My favorites book stores here in the US are
-- BORDERS Books
-- Barnes and Nobles Books
-- Books a Million
What I do is browse the literature with an awesome cup of Java and
select the most suitable books.
