Export-Clixml - Powershell 2.0 CmdLet
Microsoft Windows PowerShell is a command-line shell and scripting tool based on the Microsoft .NET Framework. It is designed for system administrators, engineers and developers to control and automate the administration of Windows and applications.
More than hundred command-line tools (so called "cmdlets") can be used to perform system administration tasks and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI). These cmdlets are easy to use, with standard naming conventions and common parameters, and standard tools for piping, sorting, filtering, and formatting data and objects.
Short description Creates an XML-based representation of an object or objects and stores it in a file. Syntax Export-Clixml [-Path] <string> -InputObject <psobject> [-Depth <int>] [-Encoding <string>] [-Force] [-NoClobber] [- Confirm] [-WhatIf] [<CommonParameters>] Description The Export-Clixml cmdlet creates an XML-based representation of an object or objects and stores it in a file. You c an then use the Import-CLIXML cmdlet to re-create the saved object based on the contents of that file. This cmdlet is similar to ConvertTo-XML, except that Export-Clixml stores the resulting XML in a file. ConvertTo-XM L returns the XML, so you can continue to process it in Windows PowerShell.
