    getting nano editor in command prompt

    m sure that some day or the othr u guys must hv faced similar problem wit our habit of
    consistently typing ls instead of dir in command prompt.
    this gave me and idea of getting al those nix commands to win.

    while trying tis i found many methods on google, n one f thm ws dat u try out cygwin or msys.

    well that workd pretty well coz of the precompiled binaries in it,

    and suddnly some thing struck ma mind, how bout getting othr utilities too

    so i fired up the cygwin setup again n this time dwnloadd nano, vi, and irssi.

    this al ws just a traditional setup of getting the stuff to your system but to get it in command prompt,

    a really childish trick shud b played.

    goto ur cygwin install dir n inside thr thr is a bin folder,
    just put this location out in enviroment variables list.
    it works pretty good

    Hi,

    i have suggestion instead of installing cygwin one can simply go
    Index of /cygwin/cygwin_v1.3.2/bin
    and download all folder content , put dem in c:\windows\system32 and thats it.(Note: U have to take ownership of your system32 or u can use live cd to copy these binary and DLL to system32 folder)
    open ur command prompt c all linux command working ........................
