  • I'm interested, because using :grep in vim fills up my buffer list with blib/lib files.

    If I could get :grep --exclude to work, I might be less interested.

    What's the correct way to use grep --exclude to exclude blib/lib files? I can never get it to work.
    • The current release of GNU grep can't do it.

      The CVS tree has support for a new option --exclude-dir, which will allow you to put things like these into your $GREP_OPTIONS environment variable:

      • --exclude-dir=blib
      • --exclude-dir=.svn
      • --exclude-dir=CVS

      Though, that said, it's not clear to me how soon there'll be a release of GNU grep supporting that feature.

    • Don't bother with the grep. Get ack to take care of it. It ignores .svn and blib, and you can use --perl to only find Perl files.
