PowerShell and Regular Expressions

Here is a simple example of finding matches in a line of text using Regular Expressions.

In the example below I am searching for the word “test” in the variable named $myVar.

The command $myRegEx = [regex]”test” defines what we are looking for and sets the variable to a regex type.

The third command searches through $myVar for the word test and the next command shows count of findings.
