Splitting multiline string

Posted by: | September 28, 2017 Comments Off on Splitting multiline string |

Saw an interesting question on splitting multiline string

If you get a set of strings

item1
item2
item3

emailed to you then you could put them in a text file and use Get-Content to read them into an array. The question was could you paste them into PowerShell and get the same effect.

Not sure if this is the easiest way but it works

PS> $x  = @’
item1
item2
item3
‘@ -split "`n"

PS> $x.length
3

PS> $x[0]
item1

PS> $x[1]
item2

PS> $x[2]
item3

under: PowerShell
