I use a file naming scheme to mark my test files in a website. For example, files that start with !tc_:

!tc_abs_layout.css
!tc_abs_layout.html
!tc_content.css
!tc_intro.html
!tc_rel_layout_CMSMS.html
!tc_rel_layout_ie6_screenshot.html
!tc_rel_layout.css
!tc_rel_layout.html

I do not want these files to be uploaded to the production website, so I have created an exclusion filter in Cyberduck. I know Perl, so the regular expression should not be the problem. I have tried:

.*~\..*|\.DS_Store|\.svn|CVS|^(\!tc_).*|\.psd
.*~\..*|\.DS_Store|\.svn|CVS|^\!tc_.*|\.psd
.*~\..*|\.DS_Store|\.svn|CVS|\!tc_.*|\.psd
.*~\..*|\.DS_Store|\.svn|CVS|!tc_.*|\.psd
.*~\..*|\.DS_Store|\.svn|CVS|!.*|\.psd

The trouble is, they upload.

If there is no red text in the regular expression you enter in the Preferences, the expression compiles. Also, from what I can see, the regular expression you provide should match the given filenames. The only reason I can see is that the regular expression setting is cached for a file transfer already added to the transfer window. Therefore, when testing, start a new transfer after editing the skip pattern.

no red text appears in preferences. Have tried restarting Cyberduck, reconnecting to server. No change.

It should be noted that the filter does not apply to files uploaded that are not within a directory hierarchy. Meaning that files explicitly choosen for upload are not filtered.
