Windows PowerShell transformed the way administrators and

developers interact with Windows. PowerShell, an elegant dynamic

language from Microsoft, lets its users script administrative tasks and

control Windows from the command line. Because it's a full-featured,

first-class Windows programming language, programmers and powerusers

can now do things in a shell that previously required VB,

VBScript, or C#.

Windows PowerShell in Action, Third Edition is a completely revised

edition of the bestselling book on PowerShell. It keeps the same

crystal-clear introduction to PowerShell as the last edition and adds

extensive coverage of v3, v4, and v5 features such as PowerShell

Workflows, Desired State Configuration, PowerShell classes and the

PowerShell APIs, new error handling and debugging features. It

includes full chapters on these topics and also covers new language

elements and operators, PowerShell remoting, CIM, events, working

with data such as XML and flat files, The Second Edition's coverage of

batch scripting and string processing, COM, WMI, and .NET have all

been significantly revised and expanded. The book includes many

popular usage scenarios and is rich in interesting examples that will

spark the reader’s imagination.
