Wux: Unix Tools under Windows
Department of Computing
Imperial College, London
Wux is a port of Unix tools to the Microsoft Windows environment.
It is based on a library providing a Unix-compatible set of sys-
tem calls on top of Windows. Unix-derived tools run in parallel,
communicating using the Unix pipe abstraction. All processes are
run within an application template that gives them basic Windows
compatibility such as input and output windows and an icon. The
performance of the system is comparable to that of Unix ports to
the PC architecture.
