svnignore Add ϲomment


This is a shared library wrapper to avoid .svn directories to clutter the output of tools like find, grep, tar, etc.

It works by providing wrapper functions around some libc library calls like readdir(), and omitting .svn directories from the output. Note that it might interfere with proper subversion functioning, use at yor own risk !

First compile
gcc -shared -ldl svnignore.c -o
then preload the library:
export LD_PRELOAD=/path/to/
