4.5. How do I exclude all files of a particular type (e.g. *.o)?

When adding files in PureCM you can specify the include/exclude filter. So you can specify that *.o files are not added to PureCM when you select 'Add' on a workspace folder.

This is the best solution because you are not wasting time adding files to your workspace as controlled files which will never be submitted. However, it is error prone because it relies on the user to specify the correct include/exclude filters.

It is also possible to exlude files via the 'Ignore File Paths' policy. Just add this to your policy set, and specify the file specifications to be ignored by PureCM. Policy sets can be applied to streams, repositories, groups/users or to all.

We therefore recommend you implement both these solutions.
