PowerShell – Common Paramaters

Every command in powershell, has a set of "common parameters" (i.e. options). This is indicated in all the help pages, in the syntax section...which alway ends with:


This family of paramaters is made up of the following parameters:
- Debug (db)
- ErrorAction(ea)
- ErrorVariable(ev)
- OutVariable(ov)
- OutBuffer(ob)
- Verbose(vb)
- WarningAction(wa)
- WarningVariable(wv)

help about_CommonParameters # "help" is a function of get-help, and does the same thing.
