The Remove-PSBreakpoint cmdlet deletes a breakpoint. Enter a breakpoint object or a breakpoint ID.

When you remove a breakpoint, the breakpoint object is no longer available or functional. If you have saved a breakpoint object in a variable, the reference still exists,
but the breakpoint does not function.

Remove-PSBreakpoint is one of several cmdlets designed for debugging Windows PowerShell scripts. For more information about the Windows PowerShell debugger, see

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 1 --------------------------

PS C:\>get-breakpoint | remove-breakpoint

This command deletes all of the breakpoints in the current console.

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 2 --------------------------

PS C:\>$b = set-psbreakpoint -script sample.ps1 -variable Name
PS C:\>$b | remove-psbreakpoint

This command deletes a breakpoint.

The first command uses the Set-PSBreakpoint cmdlet to create a breakpoint on the Name variable in the Sample.ps1 script. Then, it saves the breakpoint object in the $b

The second command uses the Remove-PSBreakpoint cmdlet to delete the new breakpoint. It uses a pipeline operator (|) to send the breakpoint object in the $b variable to the
Remove-PSBreakpoint cmdlet.

As a result of this command, if you run the script, it runs to completion without stopping. Also, the Get-PSBreakpoint cmdlet does not return this breakpoint.

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 3 --------------------------

PS C:\>remove-psbreakpoint -id 2

This command deletes the breakpoint with breakpoint ID 2.

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 4 --------------------------

PS C:\>function del-psb { get-psbreakpoint | remove-psbreakpoint }

This simple function deletes all of the breakpoints in the current console. It uses the Get-PSBreakpoint cmdlet to get the breakpoints. Then, it uses a pipeline operator (|)
to send the breakpoints to the Remove-PSBreakpoint cmdlet, which deletes them.

As a result, you can type "del-psb" instead of the longer command.

To save the function, add it to your Windows PowerShell profile.
