ls --hide and
ls --ignore provides the possibility leave out files defined through regular expressions set after the
--ignore= part. The latter makes sure that this option isn't turned off via
-a, -A. The command's
info page mention Regular Expressions.
Question: Which wildcards or Regular Expressions are supported in
ls --hide= and
I found out that
* $ ? seem to be supported, as well as POSIX Bracket Expressions. But this doesn't seem to work properly all the time and is more a game of trial and error for me. Did I miss something important here?
