Oh yes, I was careful to say "almost"! 8)

It never ceases to amaze me how complex a process could be constructed with DOS batch scripts - often by relying on obscure side-effects of small .COM files etc. I've always liked Powershell (although I rarely use it!) because it seemed a genuine attempt to provide a full batch environment for windows with 'proper' controlled access to the entire system.

I do find the verbosity of the naming convention somewhat off-putting though (as indeed is the case for some other languages) - ridiculously long and complex variable names can be as difficult to manage as i, ii, iii and iiii etc!

(I once spent over a day hunting down a bug in some C++ code where a stupidly long descriptive variable name had been used in multiple places with two different internal spellings via a macro such that the compiler didn't 'notice' the variants!)
