Socket Programming Book Recommendations - AIX

Any book recommendations for a beginner doing socket programming on AIX? I've seen rave reviews of the late Richard Stevens' books, but he seem to be writing for System 7 and Postix? Does it matter? Thanks....

    No such books exist. The Berkeley sockets interface doesn't vary
    much from UNIXy operating system to UNIXy operating system. In fact,
    they're so common that they're part of a standard:

    That being said, IBM does have this doentation:

    POSIX.

    No, it shouldn't matter. You'll find little or no use for the TLI
    section of his book, but the rest is handy.
