NAME
       git-annex-matching-expression - specifying a set of files

DESCRIPTION
       The annex.largefiles and annex.addunlocked configurations both use
       expressions that match some files in the working tree.

SYNTAX
       The format of these expressions is similar to git-
       annex-preferred-content(1) expressions.

       For example:

        largerthan=100kb and not (include=*.c or include=*.h)

       This matches large files, but excludes C source files.

       The following terms can be used:

       include=glob / exclude=glob
              Specify files to include or exclude.

              The glob can contain * and ? to match arbitrary characters.

       smallerthan=size / largerthan=size
              Matches only files smaller than, or larger than the specified
              size.

              The size can be specified with any commonly used units, for
              example, "0.5 gb" or "100 KiloBytes"

       mimetype=glob
              Looks up the MIME type of a file, and checks if the glob matches
              it.

              For example, "mimetype=text/*" will match many varieties of text
              files, including "text/plain", but also "text/x-shellscript",
              "text/x-makefile", etc.

              The MIME types are the same that are displayed by running file
              --mime-type

              This is only available to use when git-annex was built with the
              MagicMime build flag.

       mimeencoding=glob
              Looks up the MIME encoding of a file, and checks if the glob
              matches it.

              For example, "mimeencoding=binary" will match many kinds of binary
              files.

              The MIME encodings are the same that are displayed by running file
              --mime-encoding

              This is only available to use when git-annex was built with the
              MagicMime build flag.

       anything
              Matches any file.

       nothing
              Matches no files. (Same as "not anything")

       not expression
              Inverts what the expression matches.

       and / or / ( expression )
              These can be used to build up more complicated expressions.
