Converting the FileSystemObject's Close Method


Windows PowerShell


Definition: Closes an open file.

Close


There is no equivalent method in PowerShell. In PowerShell, once you’ve read the contents of the file, the file is automatically closed.

This example reads the first line of the file Test.txt. The file is automatically closed when the command completes.


Get-Content Test.txt -TotalCount 1
