My lines are too long

My lines are too long

(OP)
I am new to powershell. when writing how do you continue to the next line in your editor or notepad.

For example:

$body="blah blah foo foo foo"

My goal is

$body="blah blah
foo foo"

I will need to continue this by not using words wrap so that no errors occur. How can I continue to the next line with out braeking the script? Should I use _ '

Thank you.

RE: My lines are too long

You could do that. You can also use herestrings

$body = @"
blah
blah
foo
foo
foo
"@

I've written some scripts that were more than 5,000 lines, and I still prefer single lines, with word wrap when needed.
