I started using PowerShell with InternetExplorer com object like
$ie = new-object -com "InternetExplorer.Application"
$ie.visible = $true
$doc = $ie.document
I could figure out, how to retrieve some data from $ie and $doc. But want I actually would like to do is to find out what the last HTTP response code was (RFC2616). The reason is that I want to write a script that checks all hyperlink targets within an html document.
