    Site Name: PowerShell
    Feedback ID: 687640


    Frequency: Always Happens
    Regression: Yes, this happens in all previous versions

    Problem Description:
    Something similar to the Get-Parameter function published on PoshCode (see http://poshcode.org/?lang=&q=get-parameter for latest version) needs to be included in PowerShell. The purpose of Get-Parameter is to parse the output of a cmdlet or function's CommandInfo returned from Get-Command, and turn it into a more useful format by which the end user can discover more about:
    - what paraemtersets exist?
    - what triggers a parameterset? (i.e. which…

    Frequency: Always Happens
    Regression: Yes, this happens in all previous versions

    Problem Description:
    PowerShell has an automatic variable, $pwd. One of its great usage is that its value is evaluated each time you call it and you can access its members without enclosing it in parenthesis.

    I would like to suggest a new automatic variable (tied variable), $Now, that returns the current date and time each time it's called.

    Having $Now as a new automatic variable in PowerShell…

    Problem Description:
    I think the new auto-help stuff is fantastic. But it's a tad buggy and inconsistent.

    To demonstrate this, I've created a simle advanced function file (get-autohelp.ps1) attached. You will need to save this file then run get-help against it to see the errors I note.

    Here are the issues:


    1. You can not specify a .NAME section in auto-help. If you do, then the output…
