Windows PowerShell - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Try and download an RSS feed with the old Command Prompt!
Run this in PowerShell:
Code:
$x=new-object xml;$x.load('http://blogs.msdn.com/powershell/rss.aspx');$x.rss.channel.item|select title -f 8
Or try and traverse the Registry.
Code:
set-location HKLM:\SOFTWARE

Total ability to change and modify everything, and a very easy way to script changes. For me, I much prefer documentation that you can cut and paste right out of a guide...rather than click here, click there, choose this, click on that tab, etc, etc, etc.

Nice one Rich - I was going to post this but am at work at the moment (got it bookmarked at home). Although why people ask for something that can easily be Googled by themselves in less than 1 minute still astounds.

On this site the OP should also find a graphical user help file which summarises all commands. It weighs in at around 3Mb and is also quite useful.

PowerShell is great. It makes file transfers easy. The JAMS Job Scheduler offers cmdlets for doing secure file transfers. This makes it easy to automate secure transfers:
