How can I exclude certain dirs? #31

I have a large data directory in my profile... I've tried --ignore-dir=data, but that doesn't work... I've already tried playing around with --ackmate-dir-filter, but I can't get that to work either.

Please advise?



thats odd, I just tried it out now and it works fine here, both when specifying --ignore-dir=data in the AckMate Window's options field as well as in $HOME/.ackrc

if you run:

~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/PlugIns/AckMate.tmplugin/Contents/Resources/ackmate_ack --version

What does it return?



ack 1.92-ackmateRunning under Perl 5.12.3 at /usr/bin/perl

n/m, I got it. I also had the huge file copied into another app directory. :) So two ignores and I'm good to go. Thanks.
