Port Your UNIX® Applications to Linux®--Quickly, Efficiently, and Reliably Increasingly, developers, architects, and project managers face the challenge of porting their C, C++, and Java applications from UNIX® to Linux® environments. Now, there's a definitive, start-to-finish guide to porting applications from today's most widely used UNIX platforms: Solaris , HP-UX, and AIX®.
