gitignore globbing or RE?
I have a little trouble with some auto generated binary files in my project.
So, I have 2 questions:
1)Does gitignore ( the file from a git repository which says which files should not be tracked) uses globbing or regular expressions ?
2)FOr files that are included in gitignore, but are already tracked, do they become untracked ?
gitignore uses globs. This page should give you all the details.
Also, to ignore uncommitted changes in a file that is already tracked, use git update-index --assume-unchanged.
