7.4.2 Double period?

"...the first or last “n” that are presented to Select-Object by the
pipeline. . That’s..."


7.7 prepended "."? ".You can also get count..."

7.8.2 calculator.exe vs "...calculater.exe."



12.1

"The benefit of all of this is fuss with Get-Credential is that by specifying the..."

"The benefit of all of this fuss with Get-Credential is that by specifying the..."


12.3.3
"You don’t have to specify the user name."

"You don’t have to specify the username."


Table 13.1 - [abc] example

“d[oae]n” would match “don” and “dan,” but
would not match “dean” because there is an
extra letter in the string. It wouldn’t match
“down” because “w” isn’t in the set.


I'm not sure how to phrase this but something like this...

“d[oae]n” would match “don”, “dan”, or "den" but
would not match “dean” because there is an
extra letter in the string. It wouldn’t match
“down” because “w” isn’t in the set.


Table 13.1 - ? example

“g?” would match “bag” and “baggy,” since both
contain one “g.” The fact that “baggy” contains
an extra “g” doesn’t stop the match Be careful
with this one as well because even if there are
zero matches you’ll still get a match. Your best
approach may be to incorporate a quantifier
which we’ll cover below.


Missing period after match in "stop the match Be careful..."


Table 13.1 - s example

“s” would match the space
between the two words in “Hello
There.” Reducing the
comparison to “Hello” wouldn’t
match because there isn’t any
white space but “Hello “ does
match

Missing ending period



13.4

"Why didn’t “Abcd” match this works."


Not sure what this means. Perhaps...

"Why didn't the "Abcd" match work?"


These were all for v9
