PowerShell remove line feed


Line feed is useful in some ways like formatting lines so it will be easy to read if there’s a line in between the other line.

But there are also instances that line feed might be annoying or simply we need to get rid of it since it’s not desired on the output.

There instances that Out-string parameter in PowerShell will append a line feed on its output.

Or if you take the input or output from other sources but want to remove the line feed, PowerShell can remove the line feed without any hassle.

Code below is using PowerShell to remove line feed from an input, the input could either be a text file or a string pipe to another variable.

$string_with_line_feed -replace "`n|`r"

`n -  backtick with n refers to the line feed character
`r – backtick with r refers to the carriage return

Or the code above can be written as follows:

$string_with_line_feed -replace "`n|"

So, basically line feed is replace with nothing. But for readability and to avoid confusion it’s better to put what character is used to replace the line feed.
