Date.           Name   Action      Time.  units

07/12/2001 Jane.    Stopped.   5    min
08/14/2002. joe.      Started 20      seconds

I want to create an array which holds a row for each entry above . [Date Name ,Action,Time,units]
adding a row for each line.

I hope I am clear .
Do I use Select-String with my regex code whch matches the items ?
Or is this a job for get-content ?
I am new to powershell and just nailed the regex to get the named captures
Now I just dont know how to stick them into an array as they are matched ..
