RE: Strange behavior

Thanks Bob, that may be exactly what I am looking for. Something that would affect all the files without having to issue over 200 commands or build a dummy directory just for importing. Although that second suggestion provided by Andrew is definitely better than the first.

I couldn't find where it discusses the global config in the book, if it does at all. And even if it does I doubt it would help because it won't tell me where to find the file. Unless there is a command to edit it. I tried a search and someone says there is a site-wide config (what I need) and a user config but not where they are. I am using Windows XP and an having a difficult time finding this file.

I can't even find the name of it. If someone can provide that I could at least search for it and hope it has some clue inside as how to alter it.

I'm not sure what you are asking for? An automated way to ignore files you don't want check in? Or are you talking about import?

I believe import respects global ignores if you have them set up in your config file.
