Good afternoon,
    I'm currently outputting a text document using powershell select-string; however, I need to some how convert the *.txt document to a comma delmitied file.  Below is an example:

Within the *.txt document that I'm outputting its looks like the following:

Sample1=Sample1
Sample2=Sample2


Sample3=Sample3
Sample4=Sample4

It does include 2 returns in between each section.  I would like to take this data and create a csv file that is comma delimited.
