O’Reilly today announced the release of “Mac OS X in a Nutshell” (US$34.95), authored by Jason McIntosh, Chuck Toporek, and Chris Stone. “In the tradition of O’Reilly’s ‘In a Nutshell’ series, this new title offers a thorough treatment of Mac OS X version 10.2, from its BSD Unix foundation to Aqua, the new user interface. The book’s ‘Unix Command Reference’ is the most complete and thorough coverage of Mac OS X Unix commands you can find anywhere… The book familiarizes readers with the Finder and the Dock, file management, system configuration, network administration issues, and more. Later chapters include bonus material for the Unix user, including advanced use of the Terminal and how to configure a DAMP (Darwin, Apache, MySQL, Perl/PHP/Python) Web publishing system.”
