comment Deleting entire lines in a text file based on a partial string match with Windows PowerShell
Get-Content .\in.txt | Where-Object {$_ -notmatch 'not'} | Set-Content out.txt Out-File is basically Set-Content, but it runs the input through the default formatting instead of simple string conversion.

comment Powershell overruling Perl binmode?
Its the pipe character and is used the same way as DOS and Unix shells. In this case you use Set-Content so that we can use the Byte encoding.

comment WinRM - what it is and how to use it?
Two separate things here. For PowerShell Remoting (over WinRM), there is no Linux client and mostly likely won't be. WinRM is based on standards, so there should be interoperability, at least eventually.

comment Powershell tab-complete trailing slash
PowerTab will not add trailing backslashes to a directory, but it does support recursive tab expansion based on typing a backslash. The reason for this is that it would break chaining of tab expansion. PowerShell will only call a new TabExpansion() if the command line has changed since the last TabExpansion(). So adding a backslash to the result would mean that you could not press <TAB> again.

I would suggest that you use Set-Content instead of Out-File, the former deals in raw data and won't cut off strings or format objects.

comment Windows 7: run powershell v2 from start menu's run command
PowerShell 2.0 replaces 1.0. Originally the PS team planned for possible incompatibilities, that is why the script extensions are also .ps1.

comment Why setting Powershell to set-executionpolicy remotesigned fails?
He means that you need to run in an elevated prompt. You can right-click on the PowerShell icon in the task bar or start menu and select "Run as Administrator".
