For all of us who are often faced by daunting file and data management tasks on Windows, or have to port part of a code / algorithm from Linux to Windows, we know how irritating and sometimes challenging the task can be. I recently came across this wonderful open-source tool called Git for Windows, which is proving to be a great problem-solver in such cases. Amongst its many features, the Git BASH is probably the most powerful and useful for extensive Linux bash users. Git BASH lets you emulate the bash shell on a Windows environment and lets you perform basic BASH functions on any Windows file system. I’ve tried it myself, and I’m happy to report that Git BASH has allowed me to perform some nifty small operations on the Windows platform without needing to use LinuxLive USB or running a Linux OS.
