Get-Member - 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.

The Get-Member cmdlet gets the "members" (properties and methods) of objects. 

To specify the object, use the InputObject parameter or pipe an object to Get-Member. To retrieve information about
 static members (members of the class, not of the instance), use the Static parameter. To get only certain types of
 members, such as NoteProperties, use the MemberType parameter.
