Grep on PowerShell

less than 1 minute read

I must admit that I find the windows PowerShell a really-way-too-late pale substitution for the full capacity of the unix shell , but since I sometimes need to work on windows , there ain’t much I can do about it.

So , grep :
the equivalent of”grep” in PS is”Select-String” .
The most basic usage is :

Select-String <Some string> <List of files>

i.e

Select-String DocumentsCount *.txt

Almost all other grep functionality is supported ,and you can find more about it  here
