Remove Hyphens from output

Remove Hyphens from output

I have a script that pulls the SHA1 hash off a file and sends the output to a logfile.  Currently the output separates includes hyphens.  I'm curious if I can edit the output as it is written to remove the hyphens, or if I need edit the logfile after it has been written to.

$Log = "C:\Temp\Log.txt"

Function Get-Hash{

$file = $Suspect
$algorithm = 'SHA1'

$fileStream = []::openread((resolve-path $file))
$hasher = [System.Security.Cryptography.HashAlgorithm]::create($algorithm)
$hash = $hasher.ComputeHash($fileStream) #$fileStream.close()$fileStream.dispose()



get-process | ForEach-Object {$_.Modules} | foreach {

    if (!$_.Company)
    {$Suspect = $_.FileName
    $HashOut = Get-Hash $Suspect
    Add-Content $Log ($_.FileName + " " + $HashOut) }

RE: Remove Hyphens from output

You just need to remove hyphens?

Here is a simple example.  You can use the -replace parameter of any variable to perform this operation.

PS C:\so> $numberswhashes = "12-45--5-5646-","770-97-606-","41124"
PS C:\so> $numberswhashes
PS C:\so> $numberswhashes -replace '-',''
