UNIX Programming Environment
Even though the UNIX system introduces a number of innovative programs and techniques, no single program or idea makes it work well. Instead, what makes it effective is the approach to programming, a philosophy of using the computer. Although that philosophy cant be written down in a single sentence, at its heart is the idea that the power of a system comes more from the relationships among programs than from the programs themselves.
PTSource Shell
PTSource Shell is a free UNIX programming environment compatible environment that runs natively on Windows. Its goal is to allow programs of UNIX like systems to be recompiled and run natively on Windows with minimal source code modifications by providing them with the same underlying API they would expect in those systems. PTSource Shell provides native integration of Windows based applications, data, and other system resources with applications, software tools, and data of the UNIX like environment. Thus it is possible to launch Windows applications from the PTSource Shell environment, as well as to use PTSource Shell tools and applications within the Windows operating context.
