Re: Learn Windows PowerShell 3 in a Month of Lunches 2nd edition; page 26
First – excellent book.
Question: On page 26 @ 3.5.1 the output shown for help get-eventlog or help get-eventlog -detailed shows the parameter values. However, the output I get on my test system doesn't include the values.
For example, the following is shown in the example in the book:
Get-EventLog [-LogName] [[-InstanceId]
However, the output of the same commands on my Windows 8 system shows only the following:
Get-EventLog [-LogName] [[-InstanceId]]
Another example. The text shows this for the -ComputerName parameter.
My system shows this:
The output of $PsVersionTable on my system is:
PS C:\> $psversiontable
NameÂ Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Value
I can find the information now shown by my system but I wonder what I'm missing here? MOL shows it should be available in the Syntax summary at top of help. Ideas?
There is ppresently a bug in the help downloads for core commands. Â MS is aware.
Thanks Don. And as noted – Excellent book. Thanks for not assuming I'm a programmer 🙂
