100 days of code: Day 4

I am tracking notes on PowerShell in PS1 files on my git hub repository. You can see all 100 days of code entries on the blog category page.

Today I worked my way through chapter 6 of the book: all about the pipeline. The book doesn’t draw any comparisons between connecting commands with pipes and Super Mario traveling around via pipes. So my notes on the subject drawing the comparisons are entirely my own. Because I guess I needed slightly more entertainment while reading this pipe chapter for probably the 400th time.

And also that’s hilarious.

Also pipes, the non-Mario kind, aren’t completely foreign to me. For instance in the CMD shell this command

systeminfo | find /i "BIOS Version"

Will in fact output just the BIOS information from the systeminfo command. And I have used that pipe-to-find thing in a production environment when I needed something.

I also used a lot of piping when I have experimented with Linux and BASH. But that’s a different thing entirely.

This chapter had a lot of info about exporting and importing information to XML and CSV format. Which I think I can use for my own purposes. I should probably do some brainstorming on what ways that might be.

Also, I am not sure why it seems like it takes all day to do these chapters. Really seems like it should take that long. And I shouldn’t be antsy about keeping this up. That shouldn’t happen until a week or two in. I assume by week 5 or so it’ll just be routine and I won’t even think about it. But why does it seem to slow at only day 4? That’s just annoying. Slow progress I guess.

As always useless notes available at the git hub repository linked above.
