    TOPIC
    	About_Boxstarter_Logging
    
    SYNOPSIS
    	Describes how to the different Boxstarter Logging functions to log to 
    	the console, log file or both.
    
    DESCRIPTION
    	Boxstarter provides several logging logging functions to make it easy 
    	to deliver messages to script consumers and provide detailed debugging
    	information to log files. Here is a description of each of these 
    	functions:
    
    	Write-BoxstarterMessage
    		Writes a message to both the Boxstarter log file and to the screen. 
    		These messages are output in Green to make them stand out from 
    		other messages.
    
    	Log-BoxstarterMessage
    		Only writes a message to the Boxstarter log file. The message is 
    		not logged to the console.
    
    	Out-BoxtarterLog
    		This is identical to Write-BoxstarterMessage but the text written 
    		to the screen is not in green. It is formatted normally.
    
    	Enter-BoxstarterLogable
    		This executes a script block and redirects the standard output 
    		stream and standard error stream to both the console and the 
    		Boxstarter log file. This is similar to Out-Boxstarterlog but it 
    		includes the output from standard command line utilities.
    
    	Start-TimedSection and Stop-TimedSection
    		These functions surround all script in between the start and end 
    		functions with a header and footer message and time the script 
    		execution. The footer message includes the total elapsed time. 
    		These sections can be nested.

    function Invoke-FromTask {
    <#
    .SYNOPSIS
    Invokes a command inside of a scheduled task
    
    .DESCRIPTION
    This invokes the boxstarter scheduled task. 
    The task is run in an elevated session using the provided 
    credentials. If the processes started by the task become idle for 
    more that the specified timeout, the task will be terminated. All 
    output and any errors from the task will be streamed to the calling 
    session. 
    
     .PARAMETER Command
     The command to run in the task.
    
    .PARAMETER IdleTimeout
    The number of seconds after which the task will be terminated if it 
    becomes idle. The value 0 is an indefinite timeout and 120 is the 
    default.
    
    .PARAMETER TotalTimeout
    The number of seconds after which the task will be terminated whether
    it is idle or active.
    
    .EXAMPLE
    Invoke-FromTask Install-WindowsUpdate -AcceptEula
    
    This will install Windows Updates in a scheduled task
    
    .EXAMPLE
    Invoke-FromTask "DISM /Online /Online /NoRestart /Enable-Feature /Telnet-Client" -IdleTimeout 20
    
    This will use DISM.exe to install the telnet client and will kill 
    the task if it becomes idle for more that 20 seconds.

    function Start-TimedSection {

    .SYNOPSIS
    Begins a timed section
    
    .DESCRIPTION
    A timed section is a portion of script that is timed. Used 
    with Stop-TimedSection, the beginning and end of the section 
    are logged to both the console and the log along with the 
    amount of time elapsed.
    
    The function returns a guid that is used to identify the 
    section when stopping it.
    
    .PARAMETER SectionName
    The Title or Label of the section being timed. This string 
    is used in the logging to identify the section.
    
    .PARAMETER Verbose
    Instructs Start-TimedSection to write to the Verbose stream. Although 
    this will always log messages to the Boxstarter log, it will only log 
    to the console if the session's VerbosePreference is set to capture 
    the Verbose stream or the -Verbose switch was set when calling
    Install-BoxstarterPackage.
    
    .EXAMPLE
    $session=Start-TimedSection "My First Section"
    Stop-TimedSection $session
    
    This creates a block as follows:
    
    + Boxstarter starting My First Section
    
    Some stuff happens here.
    
    + Boxstarter finished My First Section 00:00:00.2074282
    
    .EXAMPLE
    Timed Sections can be nested or staggered. You can have 
    multiple sections running at once.
    
    $session=Start-TimedSection "My First Section"
    $innerSession=Start-TimedSection "My Inner Section"
    Stop-TimedSection $innerSession
    Stop-TimedSection $session
    
    This creates a block as follows:
    
    + Boxstarter starting My First Section
    
    Some stuff happens here.
    
    ++ Boxstarter starting My Inner Section
    
    Some inner stuff happens here.
    
    ++ Boxstarter finished My Inner Section 00:00:00.1074282
    
    Some more stuff happens here.
    
    + Boxstarter finished My First Section 00:00:00.2074282
    
    Note that the number of '+' chars indicate nesting level.
    
    .EXAMPLE
    $session=Start-TimedSection "My First Section" -Verbose
    Stop-TimedSection $session
    
    This will write the start and finish messages to the 
    Boxstarter log but will not write to the console unless the 
    user has the the VerbosePreference variable or used the 
    Verbose switch of Install-BoxstarterPackage.
    
    .NOTES
    If the SuppressLogging setting of the $Boxstarter variable is true, 
    logging messages will be suppressed and not sent to the console or the

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
