Treeless reads in configuration files in INI format. The same options as on the command line are expected in the files. Files are read from following locations, where latter override options from former files and command line options override those from config files.
Config file example (values shown here are not the defaults):
[treeless] # include files matching regular expression filematch = .* # include directories matching regexp dirmatch = .* # ignore files matching regexp fileignore = ^\. # ignore directories matching regexp dirignore = ^\.git$|^\.svn$ # Note: a file or directory has to match the positive filter and not match # the negative filter at the same time to be included in output # length of indent indent = 2 # plain output on stdout, no less; allowed "ON" values are ``1, yes, true, on`` # and "OFF" values ``0, no, false, off`` (case insensitive) plain = yes # cut off long lines to fit terminal width (accepts same values as *plain*) cut = false
The [treeless] section title is mandatory.
