Learn about Windows PowerShell
Summary: Learn how to count how many PowerShell scripts you have written.
My boss asked me how many Windows PowerShell scripts I have written. I keep all my scripts in a specific folder. How can I use Windows PowerShell to count them?
Use the Get-ChildItem cmdlet (dir is an alias), and specify the path, a filter, and the Recurse parameter; then pipe the results to the Measure-Object cmdlet:
dir -Path C:\data -Filter *.ps1 -Recurse | measure
(gci H:\GitHub\vbScript -Filter *.vbs -Recurse).Count
So I have to ask Ed, how many do you have?
@Daniel Ratliff As of today (I wrote two scripts this morning) I have 6,061 PowerShell Scripts.
