Description

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 power- users 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.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.
