Coreutils in Pure Python
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?
- Have a Linux-like shell environment in Windows.
- Create a Python-only Linux distribution.
PyCoreutils requires Python 2.6 or greater. It also works on Python 3.
To install the last stable version, use:
pip install pycoreutils
To install the latest development code, try:
pip install bzr+http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~hanz/pycoreutils/trunk
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.

This is alpha software, Not all the flags in the help-section are implemented, and some behave different than one might expect.
