I’m just an infant in the world of Powershell. Thought it was just something that loaded up with Windows.
Anyway, I don’t know where to begin but I need to see if powershell can help me interrogate some data files. I’ve previously used basic DOS commands but probably need something with a little more guts now.
I deal with *. Flt data files, repeating data lines.
I would like to know if it is possible to define.
When line begins with ‘150’ for instance bring me back byte references 60-80.
I’d want it to search the whole data file and return the hits in a text file.
Any pointers or comments to say, yes powershell can do this, or no you need something else…
Many thanks in advance.
