How to create a transcript to record the activities in Windows PowerShell

There is a transcript feature available in PowerShell to help you record all of your activities at the prompt. However, you cannot use this feature in the PowerShell as of this article. Commands you use with transcripts comprise the following.

Start-transcript is able to initialize a transcript file and to create a record of all subsequent actions in the PowerShell session. Use the following syntax for that.

Start-Transcript [[-path] FilePath] [-force] [-noClobber] [-append]

Stop-transcript lets you stop recording actions in the session and finalize the transcript. Use the following syntax:
Moreover, you can tell the PowerShell to begin recording of your activities using the Start-Transcript cmdlet. The cmdlet is able create a text transcript that comprises all commands that you type at the prompt and all the output from these Commands that appear on the console.

If you see here, you can find the FilePath that specifies an alternative save location for the transcript file. Although you cannot use the Wildcards when you set the path, yet you can use the variables. The main thing you’ve to remember is, the directories in the path should exist or the command will fail.

The Force Parameter of the PowerShell console lets you override restrictions that prevent the Command from succeeding. However, it is not going to modify security or change file permissions.

If a transcript file exists in the specified path by default, the Start-Transcript will overwrite the file without warning. At the same time, the “noClobber” parameter lets you prevent Windows PowerShell from overwriting an existing file.

The Append Parameter is able to add the new transcripts to the end of an existing file. If you want to stop recording the transcript, you can either exit the PowerShell console or type Stop-transcript (the stop-transcript cmdlet doesn’t require any additional parameters). If you use this command, this will stop recording the transcript.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications. The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou
