I am trying to use a function and I'm running it from a command line. I want to have the option to enter different credentials as I have to run it against domain and non-domain systems, as well as systems in other domains.

The function doesn't have anything in place to prompt, is it possible to add something easily that would do this either on the command line or in the function?

The function command line I'm using is:

gc = c:\temp\computers.txt | get-stuff | export-csv c:\temp\test.csv

A powershell credential is of type System.Management.Automation.PSCredential so your function needs to be able to generate a credential using that type.

Do you want to generate a new credential for every computer that comes down the pipeline or can you use a the same one?

I can use the same one, in an "ideal" world, I'd like to get prompted if it hits a server that I don't have access to.
