Note regarding the second link: PowerShell 2.0 already has try/catch/finally built-in. trap is hence out-dated, though still useful in some cases.

Additional, up-to-date info is contained in the free eBook Effective Windows PowerShell, p.46ff.

Trap and Error Handling in general is covered again in Mastering PowerShell, Chapter 11 (resp. http://powershell.com/Mastering-PowerShell.pdf, p.326ff).

if you have installed PowerShell_ISE there is help available that has a section:
about_Try_Catch_Finally, or online at
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh847793.aspx

Which is useful as well.
