Sorry for the lack of clarity in the documentation. It will be rectified in the
next minor release of RBTools.
The pattern support for the -X flag varies by the SCM tool. Hg provides its own
file exclusion support, so when RBTools is working with a Mercurial repository,
it will use Mercurial’s patterns, the default of which is globbing. More info
on Mercurial’s pattern support is available at
However, Git, CVS, SVN, and Perforce don’t support this feature natively and
currently they only support *NIX shell globs.
With regards to your other question, to exclude all files of a certain pattern
(e.g., foo.*) regardless of the path, the command *would* be:
rbt diff -X ‘/*foo.*'
rbt diff -X '*foo.txt'
if you are in the root directory of the repository. However, case 1 currently
doesn’t work so you must use the relative path from the root of the repository
checkout. This, too, will be fixed in the next minor release.
