I just came across this thread and am surprised that no one else has
suggested the use of cygwin. Cygwin provides a *very* good Unix-like
interface to DOS. It opens a Unix shell window on your MS Windows
machine. Getting directory listings via the 'ls' command works just the
way it has in Unix for over 30 years, and you can pipe the result
through whatever filters you want (or write), or re-direct to a file.
You can also use the 'find' command to get pathnames in a reasonable way.
The standard shell in cygwin is bash.
Cygwin is freely available (and thus not necessarily allowed on some
corporate systems) from cygwin.com. It installs easily, and can be
updated or improved just like any Linux installation.
Just in case someone's wondering, cygwin does not provide execution of
object code that was compiled for a Unix or Linux system. The gcc
compilers (among others) are available if you want to compile source
code on cygwin.
