The following books provide more information about topics outlined in this guide. This list is provided for reference only; it is not comprehensive and The Santa Cruz Operation, Inc. does not guarantee the accuracy of these publications. The implementation of the UNIX system, networking and performance analysis software described in these books may differ in some details from that of the current SCO OpenServer software.

Several references are also included on the subject of algorithmics which has direct relevance to programmers who wish to improve the performance of applications programs.
