Can someone please help me understand this
This outputs the type that I would expect
In a scriptblock it outputs a string. Same thing for a function obviously.
Any help will be appreciated.
In the latter case you're forcing the shell to evaluate the array and enumerate its contents. Given that it has one item, which is a string, that's what you get. That's standard .NET behavior, not really PowerShell per se.
Thanks Don. That makes sense.
