Powershell – Copyrighting made easy

I recently needed to submit a program I’m working on for a copyright. One of the criteria is the first and last 25 pages of the program need to be submitted. I really didn’t want to go into every source code file and append it to a file manually, I have more important things to do than that. I used my old friend Powershell to get what I needed.

Here is the line:

> ls *.cs -recurse | ?{-not ($_.fullname -match “obj”) -and -not ($_.fullname -match “properties”)} | Get-Content > sourcecode.txt

What this is doing is grabbing all of my C# code from my solution (excluding code in the obj and properties folders) and dumping it to a text file.

From there I was able to upload one file.
