Used Pester to do some speed tests, because the comments on my stackoverflow post ( peaked my interest.
View ForEachSpeeds.Tests.ps1
Invoked the test with the following command, so that I could save the times take the average of each Context:
Invoke-Pester -OutputFile test.xml -OutputFormat NUnitXml
Then I did some math on the results as shown (yes, I use pipelines when not scripting):
VertigoRay / Pause.ps1
Created February 4, 2015 00:11
Mimics the command prompt Pause command.
View Pause.ps1
Mimics the command prompt Pause command.
Powershell doesn't have a Pause command that Prompts the user with "Press any key to continue..." and waits for a response.
This brings that command to PowerShell and allows you to customize the message.
The paused Message can be customzied by passing a string.

Last active January 15, 2017 06:01

View CatchLineNumbers.ps1
function a {
[string]$UninstallString = 'thing'
Write-Host -Fore Cyan "$($here.File) $($MyInvocation.MyCommand):$($MyInvocation.ScriptLineNumber)"
