What Can I Do With Windows PowerShell?

A Task-Based Guide to Windows PowerShell Cmdlets

Cmdlets are the heart-and-soul of Windows PowerShell, Microsoft's new command shell/scripting language. This series provides a task-based introduction to Windows PowerShell cmdlets: rather than focusing on the individual cmdlets themselves, the emphasis is on the tasks you can carry out using those cmdlets. These tasks include everything from reading and writing text files to managing event logs to sorting and filtering data.
