PrimalPad

System Administrators are a busy lot and some of them run around all day fighting fires on computers not connected to anything. Others use remote access to tend to a large number of servers. Some do both. Thanks to scripting, most repetitive tasks are easily taken care of. But sometimes you need to double-check a script at some location or modify something you have, to fit the task at hand. Since you are on the road, literally or virtually, you may not have PrimalScript or PowerShell Studio with you. Maybe you are not supposed to install anything on that particular computer. That is when you usually revert to notepad. Not anymore.

No installation required. It has no dependencies. Just keep it on your flash drive and run it wherever you need it.

PowerShell Help

The built-in help command in the PowerShell console is useful if you just need some quick look up, but for browsing and reading, the console simply isn’t good enough. Our PowerShell Help tool allows importing any PowerShell XML help file or about file and puts all of this combined information on your desktop, notebook or tablet.

Browse, learn and evaluate server-side PowerShell modules on your tablet from anywhere-the module does not have to be installed on your computer to get to the help information.

PowerShell Profile Editor

PowerShell’s profiles make setting up your work environment a bit easier, allowing you to pre-load your most common snap-ins or modules, define functions, set variables and whatever else you need on startup. However, since there are quite a number of profiles, potentially one for each host, one for all users, one for each user, one for all users and all hosts, the number of files can get a bit out of hand.

PowerRegEx

PowerRegEx is the tool that makes regular expression creation and discoverability easier, by grouping regular expression constructs by category, providing construct descriptions and examples. Test your regular expressions against an existing file or ad-hoc text with real time results. PowerRegEx features the option to export the expression’s matches or non-matching lines to a text file.
