C.1.4 Excluding directories

An alias module may exclude particular directories from other modules by using an exclamation mark (‘!’) before the name of each directory to be excluded.

For example, if the modules file contains:

exmodule -a !first-dir/sdir first-dir

then checking out the module ‘exmodule’ will check out everything in ‘first-dir’ except any files in the subdirectory ‘first-dir/sdir’.
