VbScript to Windows PowerShell translation guide

for looking up VbScript commands, or inspiration, for example yo could write a function to do a quick lookup in it

for example you can write a function to do that from the PowerShell console so yo cando :


PoSH>convert-VbScript inputbox
PoSH>convert-VbScript getObject


to start internet explorer to do a quick lookup in that guide to get help on how to translate the VbScript command you remember to PowerShell, that could be as simple as this :



# Use the Scripting Guy's VbScript to Windows PowerShell translation guide
# for help to convert vbScript commands

Function convert-VbScript ($Command = "default") { 
  (new-object -com shell.application).Open("http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/topics/winpsh/convert/$command.mspx"


Started without the commandname it starts the index otherwise it will bring you directly to the page about the command given
