PowerShell, the next-generation command-line toolFabian Piau | Monday September 23rd, 2013 - 03:31 PM
It is quite common to hear Linux users grumble not only because they are forced to use Windows, but they are not able to use their favorite commands such as “ls”, “cd”, “cat”, “more”, “rm”, etc.
PowerShell is integrated in the system since Windows 7. Already installed, but unfortunately, often ignored. However, PowerShell is the successor to the old MS-DOS command prompt. It allows you to write scripts using the .NET language and therefore use the power of an object-oriented language. The new console includes a large number of commands as well as syntax coloration.
To see all commands available, type
Get-Command, the list is rather… long!
