PowerShell String

The PowerShell string is simply an object with a System.String type. It is a datatype that denotes the sequence of characters, either as a literal constant or some kind of variable.

A String can be defined in PowerShell by using the single or double-quotes. Both the strings are created of the same System.String object type.

Examples:
