Overview

“There's no better way to learn PowerShell than from someone on the core PowerShell team - and that's exactly what you get with this book.”
—Joe Topjian, adminspotting.net

Windows PowerShell (code named Monad) is here! Microsoft's next generation command line scripting solution combines the interactivity of KSH or BASH, the programmability of Perl or Ruby, and the production-orientation of AS400 CL or VMS DCL. Because it's based on .NET, you can do things in a shell environment that previously you could only do in VB, C#, or VBScript. Author Bruce Payette is one of the Windows PowerShell language architects and developed the core language implementation. In Windows PowerShell in Action, he covers basic batch style scripting and string processing through COM, WMI and finally .NET and WinForms programming. Because Windows PowerShell is also the foundation for Microsoft's next generation of Admin GUIs, you can do everything from the GUI that you can do from the command line. You'll never view command line scripting the same way again.
