Managing SharePoint with PowerShell

The PowerShell commands for working with SharePoint can be enabled using the following PowerShell command:

Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell


Tail a File in PowerShell

In PowerShell, we can use the following command to watch the new lines being appended to a file:

Get-Content -path "<file_path>" -Wait

where <file_path> should be replaced with the path of the relevant file.

The command is roughly equivalent to tail -f from Unix/Linux.
