Yup. There are some good ports of Unix commands out there. (Unix in general has
some pretty darn powerful text tools, if you have the patience to learn how to
use them, since they're rather non-intuitive--imho, of course.) I use a set
from cygnus that are pretty darn good, including a tolerable bash emulator and
a decent C compiler. They're available at
(I can tell you that cygwin.bat will probably require some tweaking.) You can
also check out for more Unix ports.
