Include and exclude expressions
This topic describes wildcards and examples of standard expressions that you can use to include or exclude files during the synchronization.
Example: If your project contains a project of your own that you compile, and the compiled sources and executables are in your own folder called debug, you can use the filter *\debug. This ensures that your compiled sources and executables do not get synchronized and avoids the necessity to ignore these files each time a synchronization runs.
You can use the following wildcard characters in include/exclude expressions:
|Matches any number of characters.
|Matches any single character.
|Used to join or concatenate multiple expressions.
|Used as the separator for folders regardless of whether the files are on a Widows or UNIX platform.
The following table provides examples of exclude expressions.
|Explicitly excludes both bar.obj and bar.exe files in the folder build.
|Excludes all files with .obj and .exe extensions.
|Excludes files with .obj and .exe extensions in the folder build.
|Excludes files in the build\logs folder.
