-create-file-list-exclude-files alternative

Post by jeiea » Thu May 04, 2017 7:18 pm

I saw that command line option is added in the new translation command line help.

But why not use the search edit syntax? I think it is more powerful and can reduce the number of options.

Maybe cmd.exe can escape all character. Is there any issue?

Simplicity and efficiency.
Using the search syntax would currently require making a temporary database.

-create-file-list-exclude-files supports regex: and wildcards (* and ?)

-create-file-list-exclude-files, -create-file-list-exclude-folders and -create-file-list-include-only-files can be omitted if all results are wanted.

-create-file-list can be used to create a file list of all files, which could be opened in Everything, a complex search could be applied and a new file list exported.

The Everything command line interface offers full search for creating a file list from the current Everything index.
Maybe cmd.exe can escape all character. Is there any issue?
All characters can be escaped from the console with the ^ character.
^^ = ^
^| = |
^< = <
^> = >

While the Everything command line interface accepts UTF-16 (unicode), the console is limited to multi-byte character sets.

You can force the console to use UTF-8 for full unicode support with the following command:
chcp 65001

You will also need to change the console font to Lucida Console.
