Discovering PowerShell

When I'm talking, or writing, about PowerShell I often refer to your four friends when you are first learning PowerShell.  These are:

  • get-help
  • get-member
  • get-command
  • get-psdrive

Between them you can discover a vast amount of information about how PowerShell works.  if you are new to PowerShell I would strongly recommend getting to know these four cmdlets very well. The time will be amply repaid.

There may be a new kid on the block to join these four.  Jeffrey Snover has posted a script on the PowerShell team blog to display the cmdlets in a particular snapin as a chart based on verb and noun.  http://blogs.msdn.com/powershell/archive/2008/11/22/verbs-vs-nouns-by-snapin.aspx

This is very useful.
