For anyone intersted in doing PowerShell cmdlet development, Mike Stall has a good post on using Visual Studio to create and debug cmdlets:
Here's how you can get a sweet Visual Studio development experience for building and debugging your own PowerShell cmdlet:
- It has Wizard support for initially creating the cmdlet,
- F5 build support which also registers your cmdlet
- provides the full power of the VS debugger including Edit-and-Continue when debugging your cmdlets.
I've not done any cmdlet programming yet (still on the To Do list). But being able to use Visual Studio and IntelliSense would really be appealing when I finally start.
