Basic Powershell Snippets

Michael Bourgon has a few Powershell snippets he wrote this week:

I needed to parse out a Unix filename from a file.  The original “ls” looked like this:

-rw-rw-r– 1 psabcderfg data 646621 Jul 19 16:25 myfile16071901.Z

The unix command to parse it would
cat $fl |awk ‘{print $9}’

And the powershell equivalent is:
$newfiles = get-content $fl | foreach {$_.split(” “)[8]}
(the number is 8 instead of 9 because powershell arrays start at 0)

Check all of them out.
