cygwin

Hey, I’m just giving a short introduction to cygwin, to give Windows users :> the possibility to use ruby, python and all other kinds of scripts.

Download Cygwin from cygwin.com

Start installing Cygwin and choose a server and after that, choose the packages you want to install:

cyg choose server 300x231 cygwincyg choose package 300x231 cygwin

After installing cygwin, you can use it like pretty much every shell, navigate to the place where your script is placed or download the script/program directly into your cygwin directory. You can run a python script with for example typing: “python scriptname.py”.
