Feature request: exclude pattterns

Post by wuffe » Fri Mar 14, 2014 11:46 pm


I need to keep the indexer away from producing tags for many hundreds of files within my project checkout - the tags database gets close to 2 gb and slows down everything...
The problem is that the files looks like (and actually are) header files and they are located everywhere in the tree - but they are not to be considered by this project.

It would be nice if codelite had an exclude pattern field for "Import files from directory"

Another solution would be an exclude pattern that just would keep the indexer away from tagging the excluded files.

Both features would be nice to have.

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards Uffe

This is sort of related to an annoyance I mentioned before. When I try to navigate to a the implementation of a symbol it brings up files that aren't in the active project.

Maybe instead if indexer worked on a per project basis instead of the whole workspace?
