One of Microsoft’s goals with PowerShell is to give users the tools and capabilities to develop their own functionality so they never have to wait on Microsoft to deliver what they need.
In this video, recorded at The Experts Conference US 2011 PowerShell Deep Dive, Windows PowerShell inventor Jeffrey Snover shows you how to use PowerShell v2 proxy functions. To quote Jeffrey from the session abstract:
“Proxy functions are one of my favorite V2 features because just as PowerShell gives you a crazy level of control over your environment, Proxy Functions give you a crazy level of control over your functions. Didn’t get what you wanted/needed in the PowerShell V2 cmdlets? Don’t wait to see if they get fixed in V3, take control of the situation with Proxy Functions. Add parameters, Remove parameters, tweak parameter attributes, add your own semantics and have a party doing it. If you don’t walk away thinking “who needs those PowerShell developers anymore”, you weren’t paying attention.“
