Although I only skimmed it, I stumbled upon Eric Raymond's _The Art of
UNIX Programming_ (2003). It has A LOT of good stuff in there!

* http://catb.org/~esr/writings/taoup/

The Art of Unix Programming attempts to capture the engineering wisdom
and philosophy of the Unix community as it's applied today — not
merely as it has been written down in the past, but as a living
"special transmission, outside the scriptures" passed from guru to
guru. Accordingly, the book doesn't focus so much on "what" as on
"why", showing the connection between Unix philosophy and practice
through case studies in widely available open-source software.
