RE: Re: Re: Global Ignore Pattern Issues

I can tell you for a fact that this is the behavior for a basic file pattern.

For example, *.exe in the tortoise global ignore pattern will not prevent .exe files from showing up when doing "check for modifications" show unversioned files. But adding it to the subversion pattern will.

Are you sure that the other "bin" files that are not showing up isn't because of other file patterns?

And with respect to directories, no matter what I try I can't seem to ignore a directory based on a pattern.

Fundamentally, ignore is not doing what people might expect, or need (eg not friggin scanning my whole c: drive), in my opinion, but this seems of little consequence to most people.

The pattern I have in Global ignore pattern certainly affects the files considered for Tortoise's "check for modifications" command, which is what I'm mainly concerned with. "bin */bin */bin/*" removes
*most* bin entries from the list, but not all, which is what I'm puzzled by.
