PowerShell Plus is an IDE (Interactive Development Environment) for PowerShell, which is Microsoft’s high-end scripting/batch processing language. As such, it is focused on the needs of the network admins, DBAs, and so forth, who regularly use PowerShell, as opposed to a more generic IDE such as Eclipse. Idera has released PowerShell Plus—formerly a $200 commercial program—as freeware, with no feature limits, upsells, or other gotchas that sometimes accompany a pay-to-free conversion.
PowerShell Plus offers a clean, easy-to-understand interface that adheres to standard Windows guidelines. There is a good deal of flexibility in which of the many panes and tabs are displayed, and this can be set on a tab-by-tab basis: Each tab open in the main window has its own set of configured controls, so you see exactly what you want to see for each document you edit, within some limits.
