UNIX/LINUX Productivity Tools on Windows

Posted on 06 October 2002 by Demian Turner

I’ve been hearing rumours for some time about a Windows app that lets you emulate *NIX file management on Windows without installing something massive like Cygwin or running VMware. The app in question is called MSYS and running it’s tiny executable (2509 kb) makes the following known and loved *NIX tools available to Windows developers:

  • bash
  • bzip2
  • diffutils
  • fileutils
  • findutils
  • gawk
  • gzip
  • m4
  • make
  • rxvt
  • sed
  • sh-utils
  • tar
  • texinfo
  • textutils
  • vim
