Here are some ports 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.

Useful, smaller than Cygwin tools for use on MS OSs. I'd wanted to use sed for a while. Need to learn sed (or Perl, I've been thinnin') as it'd replace my reliance on cheeseball VB6 apps I've written for text manipulation.
