Enable-BlackISE

I have been asked a few times about the color scheme I use in PowerShell ISE. I can’t take credit for designing it. The work was done by David Mohundro. You can find his post at http://www.mohundro.com/blog/2008/12/31/PowerShellISEThemes.aspx.  Here is my version of the function. It simply uses the $psISE variable to mess with the token colors.

Have fun. It would be great to see what other kinds of themes people can come up with.
