You don't need Cygwin, there's a perfectly good 32-bit awk for
DOS/Windows/NT (I think there's two of them, actually). I forget where I
got them, it's been about three years, but they are out there in binary
form. And you could simulate ls with the dir command, using the right
options. Or get 4DOS or 4NT, their dir is better.
