Is it possible to have multiple lines of stdout/stderr in the test output view?

In this build:

You can see that the PowerShell script reports a multi-line string via AppVeyor API:

But it's displayed as a single line in the test view.

    How do you call that API?

    Here's the code that I was using for that build:

    Write-Output "Captured output:"
    Write-Output $testOutput
      Update-AppveyorTest $target -Outcome Failed -StdOut $testOutput -ErrorMessage "Running failed"

    $testOutput is retrieved using Tee-Object:

    & .\$target | Tee-Object -Variable testOutput

    Not sure what type is testOutput - maybe it's a list of strings, and Update-AppveyorTest just concatenates them?..

    Yup, it was an implicit string array to string conversion; using out-string fixed it.

    Sorry for false alarm, I'm kinda new to PowerShell :)
