Now on to the new PowerShell scripting challenge.
The Chairman realizes that for many people, learning and looking at PowerShell can be confusing. Sometimes, it can feel as if it doesn’t make sense. For this challenge, The Chairman wants you to intentionally not make sense.
This exercise is being classified as an Intermediate challenge. The Chairman expects more advanced users to develop more sophisticated code with advanced PowerShell scripting features such as parameter validation and error handling. The challenge consists of 4 discreet goals, which build upon the previous task.
Using PowerShell code:
- Create a random, nonsense “word” of a user-specified length, such as ‘jhmoz’
- Create a sentence of nonsense words of a user-specified length. Words should be of varying lengths.
- Create a paragraph of nonsense sentences, of varying lengths.
- Create 10 sample document files of varying paragraph length.
- Sentences should start with an upper case letter and end in a period.
- Insert punctuation into your sentences such as commas, exclamation points, and semi-colons.
- Include letters with diacritical marks such as an è.
- Create a command to create a nonsense markdown document.
As with all these challenges, you are invited to share links to your work in the comments.
