Description

The Save-Script cmdlet saves the specified script.

Examples

Example 1: Save a script and validate the script's metadata

In this example, a script from a repository is saved to the local computer and the script's metadata is validated.

Save-Script -Name Install-VSCode -Repository PSGallery -Path C:\Test\Scripts
Test-ScriptFileInfo -Path C:\Test\Scripts\Install-VSCode.ps1

Version   Name              Author      Description
-------   ----              ------      -----------
1.3       Install-VSCode    Microsoft   This script can be used to easily install Visual Studio Code

Save-Script uses the Name parameter to specify the script's name. The Repository parameter specifies where to find the script. The script is saved in the location specified by the Path parameter. Test-ScriptFileInfo specifies the Path and validates the script's metadata.
