Recipe Compatibility

Most of the recipes in this book are written to work on both Unix and Windows platforms. In some cases, however, we have provided different versions for these platforms. In the individual recipes, we've noted any such issues. For convenience, Table P-1 lists those recipes that are specific to one particular platform. Note also that in a few cases, recipes work only on particular variants of Unix.
