I want to write a snippet of PowerShell code that would replace all occurences of string in file, but just if that string is at the end of the line.
So my file:
I would like to replace string “ABC:A” with “Z”, but I want to make sure that string “ABC:ACN” would not be part of the replacement.
$qFileName = “c:\project\myFile.txt”;
$qFile = @(Get-Content -Path $qFileName);
$qFile -replace “,ABC:A”, “Z” | out-File $qFileName -Encoding OEM
To replace just end of the line, I attempted to change my code to:
$qFile -replace “,ABC:A`n”, “Z`n” | out-File $qFileName -Encoding OEM
But that did not help - no replacement is done at all.
How could I adjust my script so that replacement would be done just for string that is at the end of each line?
