There are Win32 ports of almost all Unix tools, so you should be able to do

Better still, write a script in one of the better free scripting languages - Perl, Ruby, Tcl, Python - take your pick. These languages usually include OS transparent file handling utilities that will permit you to write portable scripts. They are also *much* easier to learn, use, and keep fresh on than shell tools.

You should not shell script with Cygwin unless you are familiar with both shell scripting and the line ending problem, as you will need to be aware of your line endings at all times.
