Chapter 11. A Sample GNU/Linux Application

This chapter is where it all comes together. we'll describe and implement a complete GNU/Linux program that incorporates many of the techniques described in this book. The program provides information about the system it's running on via a Web interface.

The program is a complete demonstration of some of the methods we've described for GNU/Linux programming and illustrated in shorter programs. This program is written more like "real-world" code, unlike most of the code listings that we presented in previous chapters. It can serve as a jumping-off point for your own GNU/Linux programs.
