Remarks

The ContainerCmdletProvider class is base class that a provider derives from to implement methods that allow the use of a set of core commands against the objects that the provider gives access to. By deriving from this class users can take advantage of all the features of the ItemCmdletProvider as well as globbing and the following commands when targetting this provider: get-childitem rename-item new-item remove-item set-location push-location pop-location get-location -stack
