I’ve made a few Powershell functions now and there’s a few bits and bobs that seem like they’d be really easy to do but they are not. Now it’s possible that all this info is in the massive Functions Powershell Developer reference but I am lazy so have collated the stuff I end up looking to see how I solved before into this blog post.
