      Here is a real world example of that I need sed in Cmd.exe. I used sed in Windows Vista.
      http://enradare.orbin.se/#post19

      This creates a bat-file that downloads videos.

      I think you should also have awk, because I used that with Windows 95 in order to create automatic translations of files for some system.

      I think Perl and CPAN will not be necessary in Cmd.exe for ordinary users, because routers often have Awk and Sed built-in, but not more programming languages. Grep is probably needed, but that is not a programming language AFAIK.

      You could hunt around the Internet for these tools, but it would be easier and safer if they were built-in. Every one can't install from e.g. http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/ or Ubuntu for WSL from Store. E.g. in many schools and libraries you can't run setup-programs or switch on WSL. I think you should use BSD-versions of these tools, because then Cmd.exe will be a bit like Mac OS X, and the BSD-licence probably fits Microsoft better. Cmd.exe will then not compete that much with e.g. Ubuntu for WSL, but complement it.

      You already have curl and tar (i.e. bsdtar), which is great.

                    Sixel works now in Bash on Ubuntu on Windows but requires Xming and MLTerm or XTerm. I’ve recompiled GnuPlot from the Ubuntu 16.04 distribution with support for Sixel graphics (set term sixel). GnuPlot is in turn used by Octave and other big data programs. It’s very useful to have the diagrams in the terminal and not in some popup window, because one can e.g. scroll back, know where to look, and can avoid the mouse. It would also be easier to install these big data programs if one doesn’t need Xming.

                      We’ve actually added quite a lot of both ANSI, VT-10x and XTerm capabilities to the Windows Console in Windows 10 Anniversary Update and are now able to support, for example, Midnight Commander, Vim, Emacs, Nano, CacaTools, etc.

                      Please try out the new console in Windows 10 AU Insiders fast-ring builds and file issues on our GitHub issues tracker (https://aka.ms/winbashgithub) if you see anything we’ve missed.

                          As Chip said, UTF-16 is rather baked into the stuff we do. The console host does use UTF-16 somewhere in there. :P We just have the matter of dealing with code pages throughout the history of computing existence that causes us heartburn every time we think about how to fix this. :( It’s definitely something that we would like to look into on our backlog.

                          I cannot enter @£${[]}\ and many other characters using a Swedish keyboard.
