Some of most common GNU utilities(grep,less,make,wget, etc) for windows

In this post i have tried to note down some of most common GNU utilities, or lets say linux commands.

Here are some parts of common GNU utilities to native Win32. In this context, native means the executables do only depend on the Microsoft C-runtime (msvcrt.dll) and not an emulation layer like that provided by Cygwin tools.

  • Download the zip file from the below location.

  • Extract and run the commands from CMD by navigating to the location of extracted folder.
