The Books Folder

This directory contains a series of planned booklets, or documents describing various computer and software related tasks. Practically all the material in these books relates to "open source software" [->wikipedia] A great deal of this software will also run on the Microsoft Windows operating system. The books are designed to be practical manuals for carrying out specific tasks, or what is referred to as a "cook-book".

The books are maintained in a "plain text" format. This format is designed to be both readable for the author and also easily transformed into other formats, suitable for publishing in different mediums, such as; the web (HTML) printed materials (pdf), and reading on a computer screen (html, rtf, man ...).

When the "pdf" file is generated, this will take several seconds (about 5-10), so a delay should be expected when the pdf link in the book list is clicked.
