Code and tests

Check the PowerShell module's code or tests directly to understand commands and their working syntax.

Check the code directly

  1. Locate a cmdlet's file on your local and check the PowerShell code directly.

  2. Review the function and compare the behavior you're experiencing with what the cmdlet should do.

Check existing tests

You can determine a command's working syntax by looking at its unit test. Each submodule's directory contains tests in the /tests subdirectory.

Most text editors will allow searching for a string across an entire directory, so if you find yourself in a position where you can't quite figure out how to run a given command, try searching for it across the pester directory or the whole module.
