Howto write a hashtable (during a PS script) to a file and read from it in another script?


I'd need to gather some input from a hashtable of a script that runs at certain times.
So I'd like to add an output to textfile or ps1 then read it in another script.
Output from different scripts would come into several txt-files or ps1 then would be read by 1 "KPI dashboard" which gathers all this data. When it works fine, I'll move to an SQL database but would like to test the setup.

Thanks for your input!

Are the results arrays of hashtables? In that case an export to CSV seems to be best (because of their tabular structure).
JSON is a way to exchange nested data (the integrated cmdlets convertTo/From-JSON require PS4, IIRC).
