Powershell delete items in a list or library

There might be a better way to accomplish this… but for now this works. ┬áJust needed a way to delete all the items in a list.

[System.reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName(“Microsoft.SharePoint”)
$spsite = New-Object -TypeName “Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite” -ArgumentList http://win-vm3$spweb = $spsite.OpenWeb()

$splist = $spweb.Lists[“NameofList”]

$items=$splist.get_items() | where { $_.Title -like ‘*’ }
$items | % { $_.Delete() }

$spweb.Dispose()

$spsite.Dispose()
