Essential Open Source Toolset includes:
Coverage of Eclipse, Bugzilla, Ant and CVS Tcl/Tk, classic tools which form the de facto standard in Linux and Unix environments.
- a wide range of less well known tools including: DIFF, PATCH, UNRAVEL, GPROF, GCOV, SniFF+ and many more
- practical exercises to test competence
- a companion website which includes information on recent developments and additional resources
This book offers indispensable guidance on how programming tools can be used to solve problems which occur regularly during the development of software. It will enable you to work with greater confidence and efficiency, and to achieve better results.
