MKS Toolkit for Developers

A Powerful UNIX and Windows Co-Existence Solution

MKS Toolkit for Developers is a Windows development product for software, script, and Web developers, who can choose from UNIX-style command-line or graphical VisualStudio build environments. It is ideal for developing common, cross-platform scripts for UNIX, Linux, and Windows, from a single Windows desktop. Using the power of more than 300 UNIX and Windows command-line software and Web development utilities, including make, cc, and vi, you can develop native Windows applications, as well as Perl, Korn shell, C shell, sed / awk, and CGI scripts. Preserve your existing investment in UNIX training and easily migrate UNIX scripts to Windows.
