This is the most popular and most complete desktop reference book on Mac OS X now covers Tiger! Apple's Mac OS X operating system continues to capture the attention of consumers and programmers alike with its ability to run older Mac programs, classic Unix applications, and innovative open source software. And the latest and greatest version, Mac OS X 10.4 - otherwise known as "Tiger" - is more powerful and versatile (not to mention easier to use, faster, and better looking) than ever before. With unparalleled, up-to-the-minute detail on Tiger, "Mac OS X Tiger in a Nutshell" is loaded with new and updated material on practically every page. Sure, "Mac OS X Tiger in a Nutshell" covers all the essentials and most-talked-about new features of Tiger, including big-ticket items such as Spotlight for effortless searching, iChat AV for video conferencing, and Dashboard for one-click access to a calculator, weather reports, stock prices, flight times, and more.

But, this fully updated edition also covers the hundreds of nips and tucks Tiger made to its underlying technologies and existing applications, including improvements to graphics and the Unix-based core and an easy way to automate time-consuming, repetitive manual or batch tasks. "Mac OS X Tiger in a Nutshell" offers a wealth of detail about the new user-interface elements, system and network administration, and scripting and development. It covers enhancements to the Finder, Safari RSS, Mail 2, and System Preferences. This indispensable guide also includes the most complete Unix[registered] command reference found in print - each command and option has been painstakingly tested and checked against Tiger. Even the manpages that ship with the system can't compete in accuracy! For longtime Mac loyalists, as well as recent converts, for consumers, developers and programmers, this fully updated edition provides the perfect overview of Mac OS X and all the nitty-gritty hints and how-tos you need to make it your all-purpose, must-have Tiger guide.
