Or you could likely save yourself the hassle and run 'dos2unix' on the
files _after_ FTPing them to the UNIX server where you will likely
find that 'dos2unix' is already installed ;-)

That said theres nothing wrong with having a UNIX-like shell at your
disposal under M$-Windows (which is what Cygwin is), and you can even
install an X server and use it to handle remote
X-sessions/applications.
