When I try to call the Do-Something function with two string arguments, both arguments are passed to the first parameter as an array.

What am I doing wrong?
param( [String[]]$names )

function Main {
    foreach ($n in $names) {
	Do-Something $n, "asdfa"
    }
}

function Do-Something([string]$param1,$param2) {
    $param1
}

. Main

Try this

Do-Something "$($n), asdfa"

Or if you need the quotes around asdfa try this

$ch34 = [CHAR]34
Do-Something "$n, $($ch34)asdfa$($ch34)"
