Learning .NET development means that I'm spending a lot of time in Windows virtual machines. I cannot stand the cumbersome, ill-featured, pampering environment that Windows provides so I've written this cheatsheet to help myself and other *nix refugees cope. This page is a work in progress and suggestions for improvement are always welcome!
Although there are tens of DOS-to-*nix tables littering the web, they mostly are concerned with users familiar with DOS who need to get by in Linux. I need just the opposite table. Here is a short table of the common commands and options that I use.
|Bash command / description||Windows CLI equivalent||Notes|
|cd||cd /d||The /d flag must be used when cd'ing to a different drive letter.|
|cd ~||cd %userprofile%
|grep||find "needle"||Needs quotes|
|man||-help or /?|
|pwd||cd||"cd" with no arguments returns the current working directory.|
|vim||edit||VIM can be installed in Windows.|
More commands (from DOS to Linux):
