About This Book

1. Acknowledgments

This is my first docbook work (in the past I used LaTeX) and as an "absolute beginner" I picked-up a good work and started "cut & paste" activity. The SGML of this book has initially copied from "Linux System Administration Guide", so special thanks to LarsWirzenius, JoannaOja, StephenStafford and AlexWeeks.

The subtitle of this book has been copied from "C++ from the ground up", a cornerstone in the history of programming books. A special thanks to HerbertSchildt and his easy to understand books.
