Cygwin Utilities

Cygwin comes with a number of command-line utilities that are used to manage the UNIX emulation portion of the Cygwin environment. While many of these reflect their UNIX counterparts, each was written specifically for Cygwin. You may use the long or short option names interchangeably; for example, --help and -h function identically. All of the Cygwin command-line utilities support the --help and --version options.
