Your thinking of "The Design and Implementation of the 4.4BSD Operating System" not "The Design and Implementation of the FreeBSD Operating System." They are, believe it or not, two different books. Your point is just as valid though as far as it being "not an operational manual but a programmer's guide to OS internals." -- James Tanis Technical Coordinator Monsignor Donovan Catholic High School e: [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
