Writing help files for PowerShell cmdlets can be a difficult task. There is no official XML schema and elements from several namespaces are mixed together. The syntax is verbose and in current use cases a lot of duplicate information must be present throughout the help files.

These scripts can simplify the task. The parameters are extracted to give you a simple template to fill out, then another script uses that information and will extract more specific parameter information, syntax, and other information to generate PowerShell help files or use other transformations, such as encoding help content for CodePlex wiki documentation.
