This project is not part of the GNU Project.

NOTE: No work is being done on this at the moment. I do still have hopes of working on it but I won't get the time to even start it this year.

The aim or this project is to produce a book that teaches a wide range of programming tools and techniques made available by the use of GNU and other Free Software.

Topics that might get covered in the book include:

  • BASH programming intro
  • the auto tools
  • GDB
  • Secure programming
  • Packaging (and .debs)
  • guile
  • Documentation
  • CVS
  • Savannah
  • Porting to BSD
  • GNU(/Hurd)
  • Emacs
  • DotGNU
  • profiling and benchmarking

This book is currently a formatted collection of text that I have removed from a more beginner orientated book I am writing. Real work on this book probably wont happen until summer \'03.
