Depending on what you are trying to swap, there are a couple of ways to go about it.

(Get-Content $file) | Foreach-Object { $_ -replace $SearchArray[$i], $ReplaceArray[$i] } | Set-Content $file

is one way. If you simple want to swap a word in a string you can use:

$a = $a -replace "CurrentWord", "NewWord"

function get-swap{

"Original Vaues are "+$param1+" & "+$param2
"swapped Vaues are $param1 & $param2"


this I tried and worked
as I am new to this but
my question is that is so simple and this can be done in any programming language with same syntax so how can I reduce the code in power shell Or in other ways how can it get easy than this

In PowerShell you can assign a list of values to multiple variables, for example:

$a,$b = 'first','second'

$a will be assigned the first value and $b the second value.
This can be used to swap values on to variables.

Fo your example, try this:

function Get-Swap{
    "Original Vaues are $param1 & $param2"
    "Swapped Vaues are $param1 & $param2"
