    Lightbulb Unix Utilities for Windows?

    i thought this would be an interesting tool for many of you who is still using windows, but would like some flavor of nix:

    cygwin.com
    unxutils.sf.net

    have fun...

    haha! Cygwin owns. I edited my cygwin dll and now I have all of my native Linux commands in windows XP... if only I could get apt to work
    PHP Code:
    function kill($name) {
        
    session_unregister($name);
        die();

    Yes, many commands have been ported to windows.

    Unfortunately without a useful shell, many commands are useless as they're only good in conjunction with pipes, backticks or other shell functions

    Maybe the port of bash works?

    For a commercial product checkout the mks toolkit. It has a compleet Kornshell.

    Cygwin has decent ports of ash (bourne shell), bash (bourne again SHell), pdksh (public domain Korn shell), tcsh (tenex c shell), zsh (z-shell).

    i used to like using cygwin and rest of the ports, but ever since i got my vmware, i don't have to worry about all those things, but since there any many people not familiar with nix CLI, i thought it was a neat tool for people to practive on windows environment.
