Coreutils in Pure Python

Project description

What is this?

PyCoreutils is a pure Python implementation of various standard UNIX commands, like ‘ls’, ‘cp’ and ‘gzip’. It also contains sh.py, a shell-like environment which will make Unix-users feel right at home on the Windows command-prompt.

Now why you wanna go and do that?

  1. Fun!
  2. Have a Linux-like shell environment in Windows.
  3. Create a Python-only Linux distribution.

Requirements

PyCoreutils requires Python 2.6 or greater. It also works on Python 3.

Install

To install the last stable version, use:

pip install pycoreutils

or

easy_install pycoreutils

Haven’t I seen this before?

David Cantrell also has a project with the same name at https://github.com/dcantrell/pycoreutils. His project is a little different in that it uses C-bindings, is GPL-licensed and is structured differently.
