Automating the world one-liner at a time…
Manning Press was generous enough to put another chapter of Bruce Payette's Book PowerShell in Action book online. Presumably you'll read it and become convinced that you must buy the book in its entirety. Whatever the motivation – we all get a great free chapter on Processing text, files and XML.
I was honored to be offered the opportunity of writing the forward. You can read that online as well.

I purchased the early beta release of Bruce's "Powershell in Action" book. I have now read it twice, once in beta form, and once as the final release. There is a lot of great stuff in there, and I can fully recommend it as a great way to get all the PowerShell info you need in one neat package.
