Expression Expansion in Strings in Windows PowerShell
What is expression expansion in strings in Windows PowerShell?
Expression expansion in strings is a short-hand of string concatenation operations using the following syntax rule:
When an expression enclosed in parentheses following a $ sign is included in a double-quoted string literal like "... $(expression) ...", it will be replaced with the string representation of the express result.
In other words, the following two expressions are identical:
"Leading text $($a*$b) trailing text." "Leading text "+($a*$b)+" trailing text."
Here are some good examples of using expression expansion in a string:
PS C:\fyicenter> Write-Host "Current time is $( (Get-Date).TimeOfDay )." Current time is 19:16:33.4997682. PS C:\fyicenter> "Firefox virtual memory size = $( (Get-Process Firefox).VirtualMemorySize)." Firefox virtual memory size = 1175629824.
