Scripting Games–major dislike #2

Richard Siddaway Richard Siddaway Profile: Richard Siddaway

I’ve already blogged about incorrect use of backticks. Here is another example of un-necessary use of backticks

$Files= Get-ChildItem `
-Path $Path `
-include $Type `
-Recurse `
-File |
Where-Object {$_.LastWriteTime -lt (get-date).AddDays(-$OlderThan) }

Spreading out one parameter per line like this doesn’t add anything to the script and makes working on the get-childitem cmdlet code harder if you want to change it.

Don’t do this
