Directories/files/types excluded (UNIX)

Module: File Find

Use this option to exclude specified directories and files from the File Find directory traversal. You can specify files and directories with full path names or without path names. For example, if you enter /etc/passwd, only the /etc/passwd file is excluded. If you enter passwd, all files and directories named passwd are excluded. If you enter etc/passwd, nothing is excluded because this is an illegal format. Enter the file-type proceeded by a pipe character to exclude files of that type. For example, you would enter CHAR to exclude character device files. Available file-types are CHAR, BLOCK, FIFO, and SOCK.

The following table lists the error message for the check.
