Getting Started with PowerShell: The Pipeline
This blog is by Ed Wilson (The Scripting Guy) and is an extract from his book "Windows PowerShell 3.0 First Steps".
It describes the way that the Windows PowerShell pipeline takes the output from one command, and sends it as input to another command. This is a very powerful scripting feature as it removes the necessity to store the results of the first command as a variable.
eg Get-NetAdapter | Enable-NetAdapter
