Scope Language Syntax Reference
The scopes language is used in specifying project scopes involved in the various kinds of analysis.
Sets of files
- Single file is defined by a file name, i.e.
- Set of all files in a directory, not recursing into subdirectories, is defined by an asterisk after slash, for example:
- Set of all files in a directory including contents of subdirectories, is defined by an asterisk after double slash, for example
The scope language allows you to use common logical operators:
&& for AND || for OR ! for NOT
Besides that, the parentheses can be used to join the logical operators into groups. For example, the following scope
implies either <a> and <c>, or <b> and <c>.
Scopes are defined in the Scopes dialog box in the following ways:
- Specify file masks in the Pattern text box, or click and type the pattern in the editor.
- Using the Mouse Pointer
- Select files and folders in the project tree view and click the buttons Include, Include Recursively, Exclude, and Exclude Recursively. For information about the controls, refer to Scope page description.
