Does anyone know how to use mingw-get install to install the unix du command?

I couldn't find which package to use. mingw-get install du does not work.

This is with 32 bit MinGW/MSYS from mingw.org


mingw-get works with packages rather than individual binaries, as does apt-get. The du binary is part of the coreutils package, so try

mingw-get install coreutils

    Thanks. I tried mingw-get install msys-coreutils, and it works. – tinlyx May 30 '15 at 17:18
