SYNOPSIS

hidesvn command ...

DESCRIPTION

The hidesvn command can be prefixed to any commands to hide .git, .hg, .svn and CVS directories from calls to readdir and readdir_r. This is especially useful when using commands like grep(1) to search in directories recursively, but want to exclude any data files from version control systems from the results.

SEE ALSO

readdir(3), readdir_r(3), rtld(1)

BUGS

Because this application only changes the behaviour of readdir and readdir_r, applications that use functions like seekdir and telldir may get confused.

Because hidesvn uses LD_PRELOAD to preload a library, hidesvn will not work with setuid applications.
