Parsing PowerShell Programatically

I’ve recently been working with a lot of PowerShell at work, and the experience has been, well, less than perfect. PowerShell is a dynamically-typed scripting language, and is most often used for administering Windows systems. The combination of making system changes and the runtime errors associated with dynamically-typed languages has been frustrating. It’s quite common to get the system into a weird or inconsistent state when developing PowerShell scripts.

Ideally all your PowerShell is properly orchestrated with -WhatIf and SupportsShouldProcess functionality, but in my experience it’s common for there to be large differences in behavior between -WhatIf execution and real execution.

The end goal continue.
