Write-Verbose - 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
Writes text to the verbose message stream.

Write-Verbose [-Message] <string> [<CommonParameters>]

The Write-Verbose cmdlet writes text to the verbose message stream in Windows PowerShell. Typically, the verbose me
ssage stream is used to deliver information about command processing that is used for debugging a command. 

By default, the verbose message stream is not displayed, but you can display it by changing the value of the $Verbo
sePreference variable or using the Verbose common parameter in any command.
