Publisher Comments:

This portable reference to Windows PowerShell summarizes both the command shell and scripting language, and provides a concise reference to the major tasks that make PowerShell so successful. It's an ideal on-the-job tool for Windows administrators who don't have time to plow through huge books or search online.

Written by Microsoft PowerShell team member Lee Holmes, and excerpted from his Windows PowerShell Cookbook, Windows PowerShell Pocket Reference offers up-to-date coverage of PowerShell's 3.0 release. You'll find information on .NET classes and legacy management tools that you need to manage your system, along with chapters on how to write scripts, manage errors, format output, and much more.

Beginning with a whirlwind tour of Windows PowerShell, this convenient guide covers:

  • PowerShell language and environment
  • Regular expression reference
  • PowerShell automatic variables
  • Standard PowerShell verbs
  • Selected .NET classes and their uses
  • WMI reference
  • Selected COM objects and their uses
  • .NET string formatting
  • .NET datetime formatting

An authoritative source of information about PowerShell since its earliest betas, Lee Holmes' vast experience lets him incorporate both the "how" and the "why" into the book's discussions. His relationship with the PowerShell and administration community — through newsgroups, mailing lists, and his informative blog Lee Holmes — gives him insight into problems faced by administrators and PowerShell users alike.

If you're ready to learn this powerful tool without having to break stride in your routine, this is the book you want.
