Episode 1 – Fundamental Cmdlets

PowerScripting Podcast

A podcast about Windows PowerShell.
In this show I discussed the cmdlets Get-Command, Get-Help and Get-Member.
Here is a great video discussion of these cmdlets by Jeffrey Snover. (updated to a newer version)
I also talked about a great Technet video by Don Jones about the PowerShell Pipeline.
For our first PowerShell moment I talked about $f= dir
The one-liner (full version) is:

Get-Content servers.txt | %{$x = net time \$_; $x[0];If($x[2].contains(”Local”)){$x[2]}} | Add-Content Servertime.txt

You can find more detail about this one-liner in an earlier post.
