Topics include processes, threads, virtual memory, file systems, distributed computing, protection, and network protocols. Chapters 1 through 12 form the basis of the course with other topics selected by the instructor. Course Objectives: Create awareness of typical multi-user operating systems structures. Create awareness of concurrent programming issues. Create awareness of network protocols and network programming.
Course Outcomes: Students will: Create and coordinate concurrent processes using fork and exec system calls. Use signals to selectively invoke interrupt handling routines. Use file descriptors and file pointers to selectively direct program output. Invoke job control in a UNIX shell. Use POSIX and System V Semaphores to synchronize processes and threads. Create threads and change thread attributes.
Use mutex and condition variables to synchronize threads. Create client-server network applications using sockets, TLI, and STREAMS.

The new Power Mac G4 is up to twice as fast as the fastest Pentium III-based PCs. With its Pentium-crushing speed and new design, the Power Mac G4 picks up where the old Macintosh (G3) left off. Its enclosure is now highly polished silver and graphite, yet it still offers easy access to every internal component through its swing-open side door. With PowerPC G4 with Velocity Engine, the computer ...
