A PowerShell script to get 5 most CPU intensive processes.

PowerShell passes .NET CLI object(s) into the next pipeline (<-- this is most unique feature of all shells) so there is need to parse text as you do in other shells (using sed or awk).

PS C:\misc\sources> gps | sort -desc cpu | select -first 5 id, cpu, processname

   Id         CPU ProcessName
