Hacking books with Safari web services

Wednesday, 6 October 2004, 2:46 PM EST

For the past three years, Safari Books Online has been making offline technical books available on the Web. This means developers can search through the entire contents of thousands of technical books just like anything else on the Web, looking for the code fragment or explanation that solves a task at hand.

This means that not only can developers search through technical books and read the contents through a web browser--they can route that Safari data anywhere they need it.
