# NAME
Write-Debug

# SYNOPSIS
Writes a debug message to the console.

# SYNTAX
Write-Debug [-Message] <string> [<CommonParameters>]

# DESCRIPTION
The Write-Debug cmdlet writes debug messages to the console from a script or command.

By default, debug messages are not displayed in the console, but you can display them by using the Debug parameter or the $DebugPreference variable.

# PARAMETERS
-Message <string>
Specifies the debug message to send to the console.

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

<CommonParameters>
This cmdlet supports the common parameters: Verbose, Debug,
ErrorAction, ErrorVariable, WarningAction, WarningVariable,
OutBuffer and OutVariable. For more information, type,
"get-help about_commonparameters".

# INPUTS
System.String
You can pipe a string that contains a debug message to Write-Debug.

# OUTPUTS
None
Write-Debug writes only to the debug stream. It does not return any output.

# NOTES

# EXAMPLE 1

C:\PS>Write-Debug "Cannot open file."

# Description
-----------
This command writes a debug message. Because the value of $DebugPreference is "SilentlyContinue", the message is not displayed in the console.

# EXAMPLE 2

C:\PS>$DebugPreference

SilentlyContinue

C:\PS> Write-Debug "Cannot open file."
C:\PS>

C:\PS> Write-Debug "Cannot open file." -debug
DEBUG: Cannot open file.

# Description
-----------
This example shows how to use the Debug common parameter to override the value of the $DebugPreference variable for a particular command.

The first command displays the value of the $DebugPreference variable, which is "SilentlyContinue", the default.

The second command writes a debug message but, because of the value of $DebugPreference, the message does not appear.

The third command writes a debug message. It uses the Debug common parameter to override the value of $DebugPreference and to display the debug messages resulting from this command.

As a result, even though the value of $DebugPreference is "SilentlyContinue", the debug message appears.

For more information about the Debug common parameter, see about_CommonParameters.

# EXAMPLE 3

C:\PS>$DebugPreference

SilentlyContinue

C:\PS> Write-Debug "Cannot open file."
C:\PS>

C:\PS> $DebugPreference = "Continue"

C:\PS> Write-Debug "Cannot open file."
DEBUG: Cannot open file.

# Description
-----------
This command shows the effect of changing the value of the $DebugPreference variable on the display of debug messages.

The first command displays the value of the $DebugPreference variable, which is "SilentlyContinue", the default.

The second command writes a debug message but, because of the value of $DebugPreference, the message does not appear.

The third command assigns a value of "Continue" to the $DebugPreference variable.

The fourth command writes a debug message, which appears on the console.

For more information about $DebugPreference, see about_Preference_Variables.
