The Linux /proc Filesystem as a Programmers' Tool
The process filesystem provides all who make use of it with a wealth of system-level information.

Joshua Birnbaum began his system administration career in 1994. An addiction to SGI led to Sun and then to Linux. From there, he broadened his horizons by branching out into contract sysadmin, public speaking, UNIX/Linux systems programming and now writing for magazines.
