iPowerShell and PowerShell Help Community Edition

Post by arcanecode »

Hi, I just bought the iPowerShell, looks to be a neat handy app. I love the fact that it's extensible by writing our own properly formatted XML files, which brings me to my question. Is the file format used by iPowerShell the same as what the PowerShell Help Community Edition uses? In other words, if I write an XML file with the help I need, could I use it in both apps? Thanks, Robert Cain / ArcaneCode

The XML format is a standard PowerShell help file format and supported by both applications, yes. Please see

for the exact format specifications.

Please note that the XML sample on this page has some typos in it.
