Job support in PowerShell

Thu, Aug 31, 2006 One-minute read

Jim Truher just posted a script that he’s been polishing for the last few months – Background “jobs” and PowerShell.  It’s awesome, and one of the first things that people ask for once they start settling in to PowerShell.

What I love about being surrounded by a bunch of other PowerShell geeks is watching scripts like this come together.  If I remember correctly, this script started off as a response to a question on our internal PowerShell distribution list.  Marcel showed some examples of how to work with Runspaces through the scripting language, Jim added a bunch to it, and it quickly snowballed from there.

Even cooler, though, is watching the same thing happen outside of Redmond.
