Updated five times a year to ensure accuracy, the UNIX COMPANION is a comprehensive reference manual developed specifically for UNIX system administrators.

Developed by an international team of UNIX experts, the 800-page manual covers the full range of topics relevant to system administrators: hardware, programming, networking and the Internet, security, installing upgrades, and using applications.

Highlighted are technical issues such as connecting networks, DES encryption and writing shell scripts. Flowcharts, diagrams and checklists help troubleshoot hardware, speed up disk and file access and maintain data integrity.
