UnxUtils is a collection of ports of common GNUUnix-likeutilities to nativeWin32, with executables only depending on the MicrosoftC-runtimemsvcrt.dll. The collection was last updated externally on April 15, 2003 by Dr. Karl M. Syring. The most recent release package is now available as an open-source project, UnxUtils at SourceForge, with the latest binary release in March, 2007 (though the files within are dated from the year 2000). The independent distribution included a main ziparchive (UnxUtils.zip, 3,365,638 bytes) complemented by more recent updates (UnxUpdates.zip, 878,847 bytes, brought some binaries up to year 2003), but the sourceforge project has no UnxUpdates.zip package. An alternative source of Unix-like utilities for Windows is GnuWin32; it has later versions of many programs, but requires supporting files (e.g. DLLs) in many cases.
