Tools: cui-utils rev2

Write it, cut it, paste it, save it, Load it, check it, quick rewrite it, Drag it, drop it, zip, unzip it

For those who are using the windows platform, there is a set of useful command line utilities (CUI = Commandline User Interface) that were ported from GNU Linux. You get a bunch of tools to handle text and files. It ships with NC which is seen as malicious by some virus checkers, I suggest you better educate yourself. Can be disabled in the installer anyway because all this comes with a useful installer / uninstaller. I thought it’s nice to share:

Download CUI-utils Revision 2 (MD5: FDABAC9479EE9DF6785689AFEF7E3C63)

Wget for Windows is not part of the package because most users should already have it on their box, right?
