||Windows PowerShell in Action, Second Edition--PowerShell transformed the way administrators and developers interact with Windows. This updated second edition covers new developments, including Remoting, Modules, Events and Transactions, and the PowerShell Integrated Scripting Environment.
Windows PowerShell transformed the way administrators and developers interact with Windows. PowerShell, an elegant dynamic language from Microsoft, lets you script administrative tasks and control Windows from the command line. Because it's a full-featured, first-class Windows programming language, programmers and power-users can now do things in a shell that previously required VB, VBScript, or C#.
Windows PowerShell in Action, Second Edition is a completely revised edition of the best selling book on PowerShell, written by Bruce Payette, one of the founding members of the Windows PowerShell team, co-designer of the PowerShell language, and the principal author of the PowerShell language implementation.
This new edition preserves the crystal-clear introduction to PowerShell, showing sysadmins and developers how to build scripts and utilities to automate system tasks or create powerful system management tools to handle day-to-day tasks. It's rich with interesting examples that will spark your imagination. The book covers batch scripting and string processing, COM, WMI, remote management and jobs and even .NET programming including WinForms and WPF/XAML.
Windows PowerShell in Action, Second Edition adds full coverage of V2 features like remote, changes to the threading model, and the new -split and -join operators. The book now includes full chapters on Remoting, Modules, Events and Transactions, and the PowerShell Integrated Scripting Environment. As well, it provides deeper coverage of PowerShell "commandlets" (cmdlets) and more of the popular usage scenarios throughout the book.
