PowerShell text formating examples

I will put here some PowerShell examples about text formating.

Examples

Extract words from sentence

PS C:\Users\utilisateur> $text="R006 : Picture n°1 : OK 001.png"
PS C:\Users\utilisateur> $text.split(":")[0] -replace ' ', ''
R006
PS C:\Users\utilisateur> $text="R006 : Picture n°1 : OK 001.png"
PS C:\Users\utilisateur> $text -replace ".*(\d\d\d.png).*",'$1'
001.png
PS C:\Users\utilisateur> $text="00686;R006;""This is a text."";NOK;;Random text;;;"
PS C:\Users\utilisateur> $text.split(";")[2] -replace '"', ''
This is a text.

Get lines from a file which matches a word

PS C:\Users\utilisateur> Get-Content 'c:\01.csv' | Where-Object { $_ -match "R006" }
PS C:\Users\utilisateur> 00686;R006;This is a text.;NOK;;Random text;;;

A concrete case

I had two files. A text and csv formats. I wanted to mix informations of both to build LaTeX output.

01.txt

R006 : Picture n°1 : OK 001.png
R007 : ?

R010 : OK 001.png
R011 : OK 002.png
R012 : OK 002.png
R014 : OK 003.png

R015 : OK 004.png

R017 : OK 006.png -> Random comment here

01.csv
