How do I identify what libs/module/snapin is required?

Post by peter_mclean@dodo.com.au »

When I have found a cmdlet that I wish to use, how do I then identify what lib, module or snapin must be loaded in order to use the cmdlet? I can not find any reference to the lib, module or snap in required within any of the text that describes the name, synopsis, syntax, etc for the cmdlet. It would be helpful to have another section for module required, including: how to get, how to load and how best to make use of. The libs service does provide a full list of libs being used to provide the cmdlets, but without selecting each lib one by one, it is very difficult to identify what cmdlets belong to what modules. Or am I just missing some thing?

No you are not missing anything. In the forthcoming version I include the module name below the cmdlet name so that you can easily tell what module that cmdlet is part of. But that version is not expected until the fall. I can try to see if I can back-port it to a iOS 6 compatible build.

As to " how to get, how to load and how best to make use of. " I would have to find or create additional reference material as the Microsoft Supplied help files apparently do not include that information. Much bigger feature to add.

Thanks Ferdinand for the quick response. I look forward to the next version as this feature will be very helpful.
