Complete syntax for .jazzignore file

Tim Feeney (30735645) | asked Jun 28 '11, 3:50 p.m.
Where can I find the complete syntax for the .jazzignore file? The online help shows you can specify a value for but I know there are other values that can be specified for core.ignore and core.ignore.recursive. What other options are there?

I don't believe the syntax is documented anywhere other than the header of the .jazzignore file.

In a nutshell:
  • patterns listed in core.ignore are ignored in the same directory that the .jazzignore file appears in.
  • patterns listed in core.ignore.recursive are ignored in the current directory and all subdirectories.
  • each list of patterns consists of zero or more patterns separated by white space.
  • each pattern should appear in curly brackets.
  • characters can be escaped with backslashes.
  • the pattern list may be split across lines by ending the line with a backslash, and starting the next line with a tab.

The current comment describing core.ignore.recursive is unnecessarily enigmatic. I've submitted bug 170350 to fix it.

"" is from an older version. Make sure you check your version first.
