Java: How to program 5E - 01/13/04 03:59 PM

Hey guys, I'm currently in need of a book although I cannot afford it, being poor sucks. I need it to be able to do my assignments and labs but I cannot find it anywhere. The site only has 3 chapters for sample chapters, which aren't the ones I need, of course. I was wondering where I could find this book cheap, less than 20$, or free. Thanks.

Damn, fifth edition? I've got the first edition on my bookshelf. Makes me feel old...

Your best bet is EBay, or try some place that sells educational discounts. From assignments and labs, sounds like you're in school, and I'm sure if it's a required book then your school bookstore sells it.

As far as I know, it's not possible. Java doesn't provide you with low level access to hardware like that. You can't write keyloggers, packet sniffers, or any other type of program that has to "hook" some piece of hardware. I suppose you could do it using JNI (Java Native Interface), but that involves writing OS-specific C code. Might as well just write it in C.
