Subject Re: How to delete Emacs save files
Date Mon, 25 Sep 2000 20:55:19 GMT
To answer my own question, RTFM, Scott:

"Default Excludes

There are a set of definitions which are excluded by default from all
directory based tasks. They are:

        "**/*~",    <------------- I didn't see this before... :-)

If you do not want these default excludes applied, you may disable them
with the defaultexcludes="no" attribute."

We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming. :-)
