Applies To: Windows PowerShell
Specifies an action that changes the data from one representation to another when the cmdlet supports bidirectional conversion, or the conversion between multiple data types. For example, the Convert-Path cmdlet converts a path from a Windows PowerShell path to a Windows PowerShell provider path.
Assembly: System.Management.Automation (in System.Management.Automation.dll)
For consistency with other cmdlets that perform the same action, do not use verbs such as Change, Resize, or Resample for this action.
The verb portion of a cmdlet name specifies the action that is taken by the cmdlet and is specified by the Cmdlet attribute. For more information about the declaration syntax that is used to specify the Cmdlet attribute, see Cmdlet Attribute Declaration.
For more information about the guidelines for selecting verb names, see Approved Verbs for Windows PowerShell Commands.
