Format-XML (Journey to Pretty XML output)

I ran across a need to use Export-CliXML to produce human readable XML. Since, I never really cared what the output looked like so I let the blob go.

Now I care 🙂

I sent a message to the Powershell Dev Team and as always they are super speedy in response. (less than 1hr… that is INSANE.)

Enter Format-XML

Thanks Again Jeffrey and Team!

p.s. I dont believe I ever said the output (Export-CliXML) looked like crap… just not Pretty 🙂

    Format-XML is a PSCX cmdlet also … their code has a few more options you could expose in the script if you wanted to 😉
