Now I want to apply du to all sub-folders except for /by2 and /bx4.

I can make it happen for one folder:

du --max-depth=1 --exclude=./by2

but not for two.

I found to related questions:

  1. Getting size of directories and exclude some folders
  2. Using --exclude with the du command

In (1) regular expressions are applied which won't work in my case - at least not comfortably. In (2) the exclusion refers to a full sub-directory. Essentially my question is:

Can I feed --exclude a list of files/directories and if yes, how?

du --max-depth=1 --exclude=./by2 --exclude=./bx4 ./a
