In future, you can answer this yourself by going to the Cygwin package search page.

There is no xd binary in any official Cygwin packages, but since the xd homepage you linked to contains the Win 32 binary, you can just download and use that. Or you could download the source and compile it under Cygwin (untested, but likely to work).

thanks for the comprehensive answer. I found the binary on the homepage, that you mentioned, and just went ahead and used that. – unixman83 Aug 3 '11 at 1:13

Take a look at bvi or hexedit.
