If you control the machines it will be run on, look into Cygwin. It's a decent set of unix tools that run under Windows.

    If the OP just wants the command line tools such as cat then cygwin is probably overkill. Unix Utils on sourceforge is a collection of UNIX command line ported for Windows and will probably do the trick.
