Converting the Windows Script Host GetResource Method
Definition: Returns the value of a resource defined with the <resource> element.
The GetResource method is reserved for use with Windows Script Files (.WSF files), and is primarily used as a way to localize a script: it enables you to define a set of strings (for example, an error message localized into several different languages) and then retrieve a specific value using an assigned – and unique – resource ID. The initial release of Windows PowerShell does not include anything similar to GetResource. However, the Community Technology Preview (CTP) release of Windows PowerShell 2.0 features a data section that does something similar: it enables you to separate your actual scripting code from resource information such as error messages. For more information about the data section, see the Windows PowerShell online help.
