Interactive instruction search using the Tachyon PowerShell Toolkit

The Tachyon Explorer UI contains an interactive search dialogue for finding and executing Tachyon instructions. The interactive instruction search feature provides you with similar capabilities, but directly from the PowerShell command window.

Interactive search allows you to do the following.

  • Interactively find and execute an instruction

  • Interactively find an instruction and automatically create a PowerShell cmdlet from it - the cmdlet can then be run at any time, just like any regular PowerShell cmdlet

  • Interactively find an instruction and then export it to an XML instruction file.


The single-character input method used by interactive search is not available in the PowerShell ISE and so you cannot single-step through the interactive search code in the ISE. Every other feature of the PowerShell integration Toolkit is debuggable in the ISE except for this one.
