CLI package installation on Cygwin
Cygwin officially gives a vague answer about where there is a command-line installer for it or not. A quick search gave two options: cyg-apt (last updated in 2009) and apt-cyg (currently maintained). I'd try apt-cyg. And you are all set. If you do not have wget, install it. Cheers!

Joel probably says that, it is an aptitude that not everyone can have.

Anguish of BANGLA (script) lost amongst English (alphabet)
Once, I made LikhonPad for phonetically typing Bengali (type using English keyboard and let it convert to Bengali).
