Use UNIX commands in windows
 
I came across this nice collection of UNIX utilities that allow you to use UNIX commands on windows. It does not require any dlls or environments. It is just a collection of programs.
 
Download UnxUtils from http://www.weihenstephan.de/~syring/win32/UnxUtils.zip
Extract the contents
Then download UnxUpdates.zip  from http://www.weihenstephan.de/~syring/win32/UnxUpdates.zip
Extract the contents into UnxUtils\usr\local\wbin  as created by the previous extraction.
 
If you add the UnxUtils\usr\local\wbin path to your PATH environment variable you can now use the UNIX commands like ls...
 
Note that the project page for UnxUtils http://unxutils.sourceforge.net/ did not allow the download.

UnxUtils: vi command
 
The vi editor in the unxutils collection of unix commands is not supporting block editing. Does anyone know a better port of vi for windows/dos?
