Description


You can use the EXCLUDE command to eliminate files from a File List display.   Since displays showing File Lists do not support a File Patterns input field (since File Lists internally support patterns on each individual entry in a File List) this command provides another level of filtering.


The File-pattern operand is exactly the same format and structure as the File Patterns option field


The File-pattern operand should contain a list of one or more file patterns or “wildcards” of files you wish to exclude.   The format used is the based on that used by Windows Explorer or the command line.  (A ? question mark matches any single character, and an * asterisk matches zero or more characters up to the next period or delimiter.)  To exclude all .BAS  files in a directory, specify *.BAS.  To exclude all .BAS and .TXT files, specify *.BAS;*.TXT


Note that when multiple masks are specified, they must be enclosed in quotes if you are using the default command separator of ;.  e.g.  EXCLUDE "A*.TXT;B*.TXT"
