Would it be possible to have folder wildcard exclusions added into the folder compare for DiffMerge?

The scenario is that the source directory has Resharper files in it and the target doesn't. I'd like to exclude _Resharper.* The existing exclusions don't work as ReSharper uses a directory unique per solution -- i.e., _ReSharper.MySolution.

Thanks!

I haven't seen a package use a naming scheme like that for their temporary files and stuff before.

Yeah, that'd be no problem to add.

I would also like the wildcard capability. I was hoping that the filtering were a "CONTAINS" type of comparison, not an "EQUALS", so as to be able to specify "temp" and omit every folder with the name "temp" (such as "Temp notes"). Of course, such an implicit wildcard implementation could sometimes eliminate desirable names, so an explicit wildcard functionality would be better.

Perhaps you could integrate a regular expression evaluation engine...

Also, at least in the Windows version of this tool, case-sensitivity is an extreme headache, in my view. Since Windows doesn't distinguish case in names, I might have folders named "temp", "Temp", and "TEMP", and want to exclude them all with one specification!

Thanks,

René

Yeah, a RE would be better than a simple wildcard.
This would be no trouble to add. I'll add this note
to the original work-item/feature.

thanks

sorry, but no, not at this time.
It is on the list, but I can't say
yet when I will be able to get
to it.
