Small batch file wrapper around PowerShell to uniquely sort file based content

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/05/19

From my batch file library; note this PowerShell wrapper does not support stdin, but that is OK for me.

For Windows 10 and up, sort /unique works too and supports stdin.

:: note: does not work on stdin, unliqke sort which does support standard input
PowerShell Get-Content %1 ^| Sort-Object ^| Get-Unique
:: note that for Windoww 10 and up, there is a sort /unique switch, but Windows versions below it do not.
