Professional Windows PowerShell (Programmer to Programmer)

Professional Windows® PowerShell

Forget everything you know about the Windows command line because you're about to enter a whole new ballgame. Windows PowerShell provides a new environment for interactive exploration and administration of Windows machines that's different from and more consistent than what you've previously used on Windows and Unix platforms. In one of the first books to cover this groundbreaking technology, Andrew Watt guides you through the ins and outs of PowerShell and demonstrates how to utilize it to create powerful solutions.

You'll find out how to use PowerShell cmdlets and syntax constructs, and how to exploit PowerShell to make .NET Framework objects accessible via scripting, making PowerShell a powerful addition to your administrator's toolbox. You'll also discover how to take advantage of its capabilities, from running scripts programs and commands to customizing the PowerShell environment. With this information, you'll be able to create a wide range of tasks that meet your business requirements.
