Dude It’s a String—The Video


Summary: Ed Wilson, Microsoft Scripting Guy, presents a video to talk about working with strings in Windows PowerShell.

Microsoft Scripting Guy, Ed Wilson, is here. Today I present a video where I talk about working with strings—in particular empty or null strings. I talk about the differences between empty, null, and white space in strings and present two static string methods that are always available to deal with the problem.

   Note  For more information on these techniques, see Dude, a String Is a String in PowerShell.

Here is a link to the video from YouTube if you would like to download it or play it offline in a different video player: Is the string null or empty? by Ed Wilson.

I invite you to follow me on Twitter and Facebook. If you have any questions, send email to me at scripter@microsoft.com, or post your questions on the Official Scripting Guys Forum. See you tomorrow. Until then, peace.
