Loading the GPOADmin modules

Rather than having to remember the module names each time you want to run a command, you can use the following simplify the process.

Extracting help for GPOADmin commands

The following code first gets all the GPOADmin commands, then creates an output file. The Get-Help command is run for each command with the –Full parameter set to return all help information. Finally, the help is written into the file along with a line used to separate the help for each command. This process continues until all the help is read for the commands.
