VerbsData.Compare Field

 

Updated: April 27, 2016

Applies To: Windows PowerShell

Specifies an action that evaluates the data from one resource against the data from another resource. For example, the Compare-Object cmdlet compares two sets of objects.

Namespace:   System.Management.Automation
Assembly:  System.Management.Automation (in System.Management.Automation.dll)

Public Const Compare As String

Field Value

Type: System.String

For consistency with other cmdlets that perform the same action, do not use a verb such as Diff 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.

The following example shows how this field is used in the Cmdlet attribute:

[Cmdlet(VerbsData.Compare, "Object")]
public class CompareObjectCommand : Cmdlet
