Exceptions

The pipeline has already been terminated, or was terminated during the execution of this method. The Cmdlet should generally just allow PipelineStoppedException to percolate up to the caller of ProcessRecord etc.

Not permitted at this time or from this thread. WriteDebug may only be called during a call to this Cmdlet's implementation of ProcessRecord, BeginProcessing or EndProcessing, and only from that thread.

Remarks

Use WriteDebug to display debug information on the inner workings

of your Cmdlet. By default, debug output will

not be displayed, although this can be configured with the

DebugPreference shell variable or the -Debug command-line option.
