    Retaining variables after script execution

    Hi all,

    While sitting at a powershell command prompt, is there a way to
    execute a script and retain all the variables the script used after
    execution is complete?

    Thanks.

    Tim,
    You can make variables global in scope during script execution. So if you
    have the following line in your script:

    $GLOBAL:someVar = "Hello"

    Even if that variable doesn't exist before you run the script, it will after.

    George, thatnks for your input. I'm looking for something that will let me
    see the final state of things after a scruipt runs. To scope everything as
    Global for debugging and then having to remove it all when all is working
    just doesn't seem like the right way to do things.
