Beginning Linux Programming, Second Edition by Neil Matthew
This book cover most of basic information you need to know about Linux programming and also included many useful examples. The only thing missing in this book is the detail, you need other references to help you catch other deeper topic. For example, the book cover Makefile but it doesn't mention about the configuration file for different plateform but most of the (Linux) OpenSource community also make their utilities available to Solaris, IRIX, Windows .......
But again, if you want to have the most foundamental knowledge about Linux programming ( or any UNIX-like system ) , this book give you the broad idea and always the best pick.
