Just looking to shrink some code, the below two snippets I've done seem tacky and I'm sure that can be shrunk a lot. Just for a learning curve really, Suggestions?

Snippet 1
  
  $nvc = new-object System.Collections.Specialized.NameValueCollection
  
  # add all job properties of $d to the NVC
  $nvc.Add('id',$d.id)
  $nvc.Add('ref_id',$d.ref_id)
  $nvc.Add('ref_text',$d.ref_text)
  $nvc.Add('url',$d.url)
  $nvc.Add('user',$d.user)
  $nvc.Add('email',$d.email)
  $nvc.Add('email_title',$d.email_title)
  $nvc.Add('email_body',$d.email_body)
  $nvc.Add('next_run',$d.next_run)
  $nvc.Add('last_run',$d.last_run)
  $nvc.Add('last_result',$d.last_result)
  $nvc.Add('type',$d.type)
  $nvc.Add('time',$d.time)
  $nvc.Add('day',$d.day)
  $nvc.Add('status',$d.status)

Snippet 2
  Remove-Job -State Completed
  Remove-Job -State Failed
  Remove-Job -State Stopped
  Remove-Job -State Suspended

Open in new window


Thanks

$nvc = new-object System.Collections.Specialized.NameValueCollection
# add all job properties of $d to the NVC
$d | 
   Get-Member -MemberType Property | 
       select -ExpandProperty Name | % {
	$nvc.Add($_,"d.$_")
	}

Open in new window

For Snippet 2, try..
Get-Job | ? {$_State -Notmatch "(NotStarted|Running|Blocked)"} | Remove-Job

or 

"Completed","Failed","Stopped","Suspended" | % { Remove-Job -State $_ }
