HIDESVN(1)		  BSD General Commands Manual		    HIDESVN(1)

NAME
     hidesvn --	hide version control system data directories

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	direc-
     tories recursively, but want to exclude any data files from version con-
     trol 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.
