The exclude list section provides a dynamic way to fine tune the renaming of the input assemblies. The user specifies a list of rules that are applied at runtime. If a rule selects a given class, method, or field, then that item is not renamed.
These rules are applied in addition to rules implied by global options such as library.
Rules are logically
Regular Expressions (REs) may be used to select namespaces, types, methods or fields. The optional
regex attribute is used for this purpose. The default value of
regex is false. If
regex is true then the value of the
name attribute is interpreted as a regular expression; if it is false, the name is interpreted literally. This is important since regular expressions assign special meaning to certain characters, such as the period. Here are some examples of simple regular expressions:
|Here are some examples of simple regular expressions:||
.* Matches anything MyLibrar. Matches MyLibrary, MyLibrari, etc. My[\.]Test[\.]I.* Matches My.Test.Int1,My.Test.Internal, etc. Get.* Matches GetInt, GetValue, etc. Get* Matches Ge,Get,Gett,Gettt, etc.
Please refer to the .NET Framework documentation for a full description of the regular expression syntax.
