Multiplication of Replace

Thursday, May 12, 2016 in Powershell (Views: 2073)
This is just a quick one, but a feature that is unique to PowerShell that makes it better than say your old VB/VBScript. To define something for replace in VBScript, you had to do something like the following:

dim string1 as string
String1="Some text needs to be replaced"
String1=Replace(String1,"Some","Not All")
String1=Replace(String1,"needs","should be")

In PowerShell (starting in v3), you can actually combine these into one statement by using multiple replace commands:

$string1="Some text needs to be replaced"
$string1=$string1.Replace("Some","Not All").Replace("needs","should be")

Great time saving tip in a pinch. Happy scripting.
