Compares two sets of objects. (Compare-Object)

   

# NAME
Compare-Object

# SYNOPSIS
Compares two sets of objects.

# SYNTAX
Compare-Object [-ReferenceObject] <PSObject[]> [-DifferenceObject] <PSObject[]> [-CaseSensitive] [-Culture <string>] [-ExcludeDifferent] [-IncludeEqual] [-PassThru] [-Property <Object[]>] [-SyncWindow <int>] [<CommonParameters>]

# DESCRIPTION
The Compare-Object cmdlet compares two sets of objects. One set of objects is the Reference set, and the other set is the Difference set.

The result of the comparison indicates whether a property value appeared only in the object from the Reference set (indicated by the <= symbol), only in the object from the Difference set (indicated by the => symbol) or, if the IncludeEqual parameter is specified, in both objects (indicated by the == symbol).

Required? true
Position? 1
Default value
Accept pipeline input? false
Accept wildcard characters? false

-SyncWindow <int>
Defines a search region in which an attempt is made to re-synchronize the order if there is no match. The default value is [Int32]::MaxValue.

Required? false
Position? named
Default value [Int32]::MaxValue
Accept pipeline input? false

# INPUTS
System.Management.Automation.PSObject

# NOTES

# EXAMPLE 1

C:\PS>compare-object -referenceobject $(get-content C:\test\testfile1.txt) -differenceobject $(get-content C:\test\testfile2.txt)

# Description
-----------
This command compares the contents of two text files. It displays only the lines that appear in one file or in the other file, not lines that appear in both files.

# EXAMPLE 2

C:\PS>compare-object -referenceobject $(get-content C:\Test\testfile1.txt) -differenceobject $(get-content C:\Test\testfile2.txt) -includeequal

# Description
-----------
This command compares each line of content in two text files. It displays all lines of content from both files, indicating whether each line appears in only Textfile1.txt or Textfile2.txt or whether each line appears in both files.

# EXAMPLE 3

C:\PS>$processes_before = get-process

C:\PS> notepad

C:\PS> $processes_after = get-process

C:\PS> compare-object -referenceobject $processes_before -differenceobject $processes_after

# Description
-----------
These commands compare two sets of process objects.

The first command uses the Get-Process cmdlet to get the processes on the computer. It stores them in the $processes_before variable.

The second command starts Notepad.

The third command uses the Get-Process cmdlet again and stores the resulting processes in the $processes_after variable.

The fourth command uses the Compare-Object cmdlet to compare the two sets of process objects. It displaysthe differences between them, which include the new instance of Notepad.
