Ian Darwin

Ian has been hanging around UNIX for quite a few dogs' ages, starting with Research V7 on a PDP-11. He's the original author of the file(1) implementation used on BSD/OS X/Linux, and is a committer with OpenBSD.

When not doing UNIX work he does Java development and mentoring for a variety of clients in the Toronto area. He also teaches UNIX and Java courses through Learning Tree International. Well known as a writer, Ian is the author of several O'Reilly books ranging from the very old (Lint) to the very large (Java Cookbook) to the very new (Checking Java Tools).

Ian is involved in a variety of open source projects, as well as trying to earn a living.
