Basic File Operations

Basic File Operations

Hi everybody!

This is my very first post on this forum. I have fair knowledge of programming, but I am an ultimate beginner to the Windows PowerShell. I just want to take a start of using the PowerShell by transforming a very simple Batch files, of mine, into psl. I hope some good soul will guide me through the process. Follwing is my Batch file code:

CODE --> Batch

In Not Exist "mySample.ini" goto Step2

Del mySample.ini

Echo The file has been deleted.





Please help!


RE: Basic File Operations

Use test-path to check to see if file exists. If so then use remove-item to delete it. then use invoke-expression to run command.
