Sends output to the command line. (Out-Host)

   

# NAME
Out-Host

# SYNOPSIS
Sends output to the command line.

# SYNTAX
Out-Host [-InputObject <psobject>] [-Paging] [<CommonParameters>]

# DESCRIPTION
The Out-Host cmdlet sends output to the Windows PowerShell host for display. The host displays the output at the command line. Because Out-Host is the default, you do not need to specify it unless you want to use its parameters to change the display.

# PARAMETERS
-InputObject <psobject>
Specifies the objects that are written to the console. Enter a variable that contains the objects, or type a command or expression that gets the objects.

Required? false
Position? named
Default value
Accept pipeline input? true (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters? false

-Paging [<SwitchParameter>]
Displays one page of output at a time, and waits for user input before displaying the remaining pages, much like the traditional "more" command. By default, all of the output is displayed on a single page. The page size is determined by the characteristics of the host.

Required? false
Position? named
Default value
Accept pipeline input? false
Accept wildcard characters? false

<CommonParameters>
This cmdlet supports the common parameters: Verbose, Debug,
ErrorAction, ErrorVariable, WarningAction, WarningVariable,
OutBuffer and OutVariable. For more information, type,
"get-help about_commonparameters".

# INPUTS
System.Management.Automation.PSObject
You can pipe any object to Out-Host.

# OUTPUTS
None
Out-Host does not generate any output. However, the host might display the objects that Out-Host sends to it.

# NOTES

You can also refer to Out-Host by its built-in alias, "oh". For more information, see about_Aliases.

The cmdlets that contain the Out verb (the Out cmdlets) do not format objects; they just render them and send them to the specified display destination. If you send an unformatted object to an Out cmdlet, the cmdlet sends it to a formatting cmdlet before rendering it.

The Out cmdlets do not have parameters for names or file paths. To send data to an Out cmdlet, use a pipeline operator (|) to send the output of a Windows PowerShell command to the cmdlet. You can also store data in a variable and use the InputObject parameter to pass the data to the cmdlet. For help, see the examples.

Out-Host sends data, but it does not emit any output objects. If you pipe the output of Out-Host to Get-Member, Get-Member reports that no objects have been specified.

# EXAMPLE 1

C:\PS>get-process | out-host -paging

# Description
-----------
This command displays the processes on the system one page at a time. It uses the Get-Process command to get the processes on the system. The pipeline operator (|) sends the results to Out-Host, which displays them at the console. The Paging parameter displays one page of data at a time.

The same command format is used for the Help function that is built into Windows PowerShell. That function gets data from Get-Help and then uses the Paging parameter of Out-Host to display the data one page at a time by using this command format: get-help $args[0] | out-host -paging).

# EXAMPLE 2

C:\PS>$a = get-history

C:\PS>out-host -InputObject $a

# Description
-----------
These commands display the session history at the command line. The first command uses the Get-History cmdlet to get the session history, and then it stores the history in the $a variable. The second command uses Out-Host to display the content of the $a variable, and it uses the InputObject parameter to specify the variable to Out-Host.
