When I run the following command, it doesn't seem to be ignoring what I specify in the ignore.txt file. I have tried adding some of the arguments with
-x, but there are way too many to do that by hand.
This is the command I ran:
diff -rcP -X ignore.txt linux-3.10.10 projfolder > submission/patchfile.diff
The diff file that is created includes things that were supposed to be ignored. Does anyone know what may be happening? Am I just using diff incorrectly?
Example of what's in the ignore.txt:
*build* *drivers* *scripts* *sound* .tmp_* ..tmp_* .config* *.o *.ko *.cmd *.mod.c *vmlinux* .kconf*
