    I am learning Unix Shell programming at college.

    How to I run Unix Shell programs in Windows.
    By googling I downloaded a program called cygwin
    But cc command(to execute c programs) dosen't seem to work & so does vi command.

    So is there a way to run Unix inside windows?

    When you install Cygwin, choose custom install and verify gcc and vi are installed...
