Description:

When it comes to Powershell, there are two main styles that people will follow (actually three, but the third is just like one of them):

To Resolve:

  1. Styles:

    • OTBS

    function Get-Noun {
       end {
          if($Wide) {
                Get-Command | Sort-Object Noun -Unique | Format-Wide Noun
          } else {
                Get-Command | Sort-Object Noun -Unique | Select-Object -Expand Noun
          }
       }
    }
    
    • Stroustup: Same as OTBS but will place “else” in a new line.
