Start-Demo With Multi-Line Commands

Rob Sewell has an update to the Start-Demo cmdlet, making it no longer require backticks when running multi-line commands:

Start-Demo was written in 2007 by a fella who knows PowerShell pretty well 🙂 https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/powershell/2007/03/03/start-demo-help-doing-demos-using-powershell/

It was then updated in 2012 by Max Trinidad http://www.maxtblog.com/2012/02/powershell-start-demo-now-allows-multi-lines-onliners/

This enabled support for multi-line code using backticks at the end of each line. This works well but I dislike having to use the backticks in foreach loops, it confuses people who think that they need to be included and to my mind looks a bit messy

I’m going to need to look into Start-Demo; I’m not sure I’ve seen it before.
