PowerShell Studio 2012 with GIT, Subversion and Mercurial Oh, my!

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013 by David Corrales
Similar to PrimalScript 2012, we received requests to add support for GIT, Mercurial, and Subversion in PowerShell Studio 2012. The difficulty of supporting all these various source control solutions is that they all have different APIs and change over time. The varying nature of these tools could potentially make the integration outdated fairly quickly. One thing in common all the source controls solutions previously mentioned have is command line tools. We’ve used this common factor to resolve the problem. Our solution to the problem is the new custom tool menu: The custom tool menu allows you to customize and execute…   More »

These examples show how to run command-line tools from within a VBScript, capturing the tool's output. ' ' Essentials - by Don Jones ' ' Run cmdline tools ' This shows how to launch a command-line ' tool and retrieve its output into a string variable ' to then do something with it. For example, you might ' use the InStr() function to determine if a specific ' string exists in the command's output.
