Converting to .NET Assembly

When converting script to .NET Assembly, map ls command to Session.ListDirectory method and print returned RemoteDirectoryInfo in your preferred format.

Parameters mapping: Command parameter directory/wildcard maps to method parameter path. You have to convert relative path to absolute path.

For example, following script snippet:

cd /home/martinp

maps to following PowerShell code:

$directory = $session.ListDirectory("/home/martinp")
foreach ($fileInfo in $directory.Files)
    Write-Host ("{0}{1} {2,9} {3,-12:MMM dd HH:mm:ss yyyy} {4}" -f
        $fileInfo.FileType, $fileInfo.FilePermissions, $fileInfo.Length,
        $fileInfo.LastWriteTime, $fileInfo.Name)

Note that this omits inode, owner and group as these are not available in .NET assembly.

  1. Only single include mask can be specified.Back
