Been stuck in a meeting and wanted to look a bit interested in that I was taking notes, so I have look around Powershell on my Windows 7 laptop.
Found some kewl stuff. Lets start with:
The Get-Hotfix cmdlet gets the hotfixes that have been applied to the local computer or to remote computers by Component-Based Servicing.
The Get-Random cmdlet gets a randomly selected number. If you submit a collection of objects to Get-Random, it gets one or more randomly selected objects from the collection.
Now Get-Random is really funky. You can run it like:
- Get-Random -Maximum 99
This will get you a number between 0 and 99
- Dir | Get-Random
Will pick a random file from the dir
- Dir | Get-Random -Count 3
Will pick 3 random files from the dir
- 1..99 | Get-Random -Count 3
This will get 3 random numbers between 0 and 99
How kewl is that?
