Let's get something working! 😊
To execute this code, open a PowerShell console on any Windows machine as it comes installed by default. You'll see the reply output in the window like so:
[20:35:40]:Alcha$ Write-Host 'Hello, World!' Hello, World! [20:35:56]:Alcha$
As is the case with most modern scripting languages, getting a Hello World sample running is really easy.
Instead of running the commands directly within the console though, write your scripts in a file and call the file when necessary. Download a copy of the HelloWorld.ps1 file from the repository and open a console.
Now, navigate to wherever you downloaded the script and execute it by calling it like so:
This calls the script and returns the output to the console:
[20:35:40]:powershell$ .\HelloWorld.ps1 Hello, World! [20:35:56]:powershell$
And, that's it!
