Switch /PowerShell

This is a PPWIZARD command line switch.

The input is treated as power shell source code.

By default the output file is not syntax checked but you can add "<?SyntaxCheck>" to have that occur.

Due to powershell limitations it will not currently work with scripts that start with "PARAM" (unless all parameters are optional in which case place it after the "param" block. I could make it work for positional parameters but a powershell limitation means that I will not be able to do this for named parameters (https://connect.microsoft.com/PowerShell/feedback/details/623344/commands-with-argumentlist-should-have-a-parameter-set-with-parameters-too).

If you don't add the syntax check you will get a warning, you could filter or ignore it but the simplest approach would be simply to make it a comment with "#<?SyntaxCheck>".

This switch can be used any number of times and will affect all input masks that follow. It also becomes the default mode for all files produced via the #Output command. If an input mask comes first then any preconfigured extension information (see /ExtnInfo) will be used or if not available PPWIZARD will abort.
