Some years ago someone told me this:    "if you are a C Programmer and
work on GNU/Linux (Lignux ?)  and you have system programming as your
hobby, intend on work on OS side then you need to master these three

1) ANSI C (and/or C++)
2) your compiler (gcc)
3) I forgot

I work on GNU/Linux most of the time as hobby and I I fit the
description above and have turned the system programming hobby of mine
into a job. Hence I intend to understand GNU C compiler (gcc) and for
that can you guys tell me if these 2 books are required:

or reading them will not make much difference ?
