Implement a 'git add --interactive' style of interactive git-clean. It will show what would be done before start to clean. See ``Interactive mode`` for details.
Interactive mode ---------------- When the command enters the interactive mode, it shows the files and directories to be cleaned, and goes into its interactive command loop. The command loop shows the list of subcommands available, and gives a prompt "What now> ". In general, when the prompt ends with a single '>', you can pick only one of the choices given and type return, like this: ------------ *** Commands *** 1: clean 2: edit by patterns 3: edit by numbers 4. rm -i 5. quit 6. help What now> 2 ------------ You also could say `c` or `clean` above as long as the choice is unique. The main command loop has 6 subcommands. clean:: Start cleaning files and directories, and then quit. edit by patterns:: This shows the files and directories to be deleted and issues an "Input ignore patterns>>" prompt. You can input a space-seperated patterns to exclude files and directories from deletion. E.g. "*.c *.h" will excludes files end with ".c" and ".h" from deletion. When you are satisfied with the filtered result, press ENTER (empty) back to the main menu. edit by numbers:: This shows the files and directories to be deleted and issues an "Select items to delete>>" prompt. When the prompt ends with double '>>' like this, you can make more than one selection, concatenated with whitespace or comma. Also you can say ranges. E.g. "2-5 7,9" to choose 2,3,4,5,7,9 from the list. If the second number in a range is omitted, all remaining patches are taken. E.g. "7-" to choose 7,8,9 from the list. You can say '*' to choose everything. Also when you are satisfied with the filtered result, press ENTER (empty) back to the main menu. rm -i:: This will show a "rm -i" style cleaning, that you must confirm one by one in order to delete items. This action is not as efficient as the above two actions. quit:: This lets you quit without do cleaning. help:: Show brief usage of interactive git-clean.
