+## About
+
+This script allows to quickly package a binary nodejs distribution for the Cygwin (windows) platform.
+It creates a zip file containing node.exe, required libraries and some useful utilities such as bash, nano and cygrunsrv.
+

+Obvously you'll need nodejs and the cygwin packages required to compile nodejs.
+Additionaly these cygwin packages are required:
+
+* Archive -> zip
+
+## Installing
+
+Just clone this repository somewhere _inside_ the nodejs directory (e.g. in tools/).
+
+ git clone git://github.com/piscisaureus/nodejs-cygwin-package.git cygwin-package
+
+## Packaging node

+Make sure is compiled. If it isn't, do that first. From the node dir:
+
+ ./configure
+ make
+
+Then just invoke the script. Depending on where you put it:
+
+ path/to/cygwin-package.sh
