Today I thought I’d share my PowerShell solution to a recent Iron Scripter challenge. The challenge was to create PowerShell code that would create nonsense documents, with a goal of creating 10 sample files filled with gibberish. Yes, other than maybe wanting some test files to work with, on its face the challenge appears pointless. However, as with all of these challenges, or even the ones in The PowerShell Practice Primer, the journey is the reward. The true value is learning how to use PowerShell, and maybe discovering a new technique or command. The hope is that during the course of working on the challenge, you’ll improve your PowerShell scripting skills. And who knows, maybe even have a little fun along the way.
It’s not quite up to the level of quality that you find in post-modern academic papers, but it’s getting there.
