Overheard – Powershell is all about object handling

Margaret Rouse Margaret Rouse Profile: Margaret Rouse

When you type a command in Windows PowerShell, you are invoking a specific, small-scale object that has a very specific purpose.  Yes, you can invoke command line applications, too.  You can also invoke GUI applications.  But your old DOS batch files won’t run anymore.  Why?  Windows PowerShell is not about text processing, it’s about object handling.
