Description

There is a small typo in the help doc of the Select-String Cmdlet:
     'The "sst" alias for the Select-String cmdlet was introduced in Windows PowerShell 3.0.'
{ Help Select-String -Full | Select-String 'notes' -Context 0,4 }

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PS C:\> Get-Alias -Name sls

CommandType     Name                                             ModuleName
-----------     ----                                             ----------
Alias         sls -> Select-String

> NOTES


         Select-String is like the Grep command in UNIX and the FindStr command in Windows.
----> The "sst" alias for the Select-String cmdlet was introduced in Windows PowerShell 3.0.
