Scripting Games–integer parameters

Richard Siddaway Richard Siddaway Profile: Richard Siddaway

I keep seeing parameter constructs like this:

[int]$age = ’90’

Why set the parameter to an integer and then set the default as a string. PowerShell will convert but it just doesn’t make sense.

All you need is

[int]$age = 90
