Far 1.71a2 - Exclusion filters don't apply

Post by LigH » Thu Aug 10, 2006 11:19 am

I wanted to upload files per FTP, using "FTP Navigator" due to a quite restrictive proxy. Because the directory branch is managed by SubVersion, I wanted to exclude all files with "svn" in the filename, and all Hidden or System files.

So I activated the checkbox "Use Filters", and set up the filters as you can see here:

Code: Select all

   ╔══════════════════════ Operations filter ══════════════════════╗
   ║ [x] Match file mask(s)                                        ║
   ║   |*svn*                                                     ↓║
   ╠───────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────╣
   ║ [ ] File size                            In bytes            ↓║
   ║   Greater than or equal to:              0                    ║
   ║   Less than or equal to:                 0                    ║
   ╠───────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────╣
   ║ [ ] File date                             Modification time  ↓║
   ║   After:                                    .  .       :  :   ║
   ║   Before:                                   .  .       :  :   ║
   ║                    [ Current ]  [ Blank ]                     ║
   ╠───────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────╣
   ║ [x] Attributes                                                ║
   ║   [?] Read only       [?] Directory       [?] Sparse          ║
   ║   [?] Archive         [?] Compressed      [?] Temporary       ║
   ║   [ ] Hidden          [?] Encrypted                           ║
   ║   [ ] System          [?] Not indexed                         ║
   ╠───────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────╣
   ║                 [ Ok ]  [ Reset ]  [ Cancel ]                 ║
   ╚═══════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════╝
But FTP Navigator still uploaded all files, regardless of the filter.

To ensure that not FTP Navigator is the reason, I also tried to copy the files with the filter to a local directory. Same result here: All files were copied, regardless of a used exclusion filter.

Did I misunderstand how to define the filters, or is it really Far ignoring it?

The filter doesn't work with folders yet.

:shock: That explains much ... :( but not everything: "|*svn*" should also exclude "*.*.svn-base" files.

Well - wish you much success implementing the rest. I already love the current features. 8)

I wish it did.
Filters like those RAR accepts in its command line (i.e. for full paths) would be enough.
