This program lists all configuration files, both the sources in the dotfiles directories and the destinations in your home directory. See rcup(1), the DIRECTORY LAYOUT section, for details on the directory layout. It supports these options:
- -B HOSTNAME
host-HOSTNAMEas the host-specific directory instead of computing it based on the computer's hostname
- -d DIR
list dotfiles from the DIR. This can be specified multiple times.
show symbols next to each file indicating status information. Supported symbols are
@which indicates that the file is a symlink,
$which indicates it's a symlinked directory, and
Xto indicate that the file is a copy. More details on copied files and symlinked directories can be found in rcrc(5) under the documentation on COPY_ALWAYS and SYMLINK_DIRS, respectively.
show usage instructions.
- -I excl_pat
include the files that match the given pattern. This is applied after any -x options. It uses the same pattern language as -x; more details are in the Exclude Pattern section. Note that you may have to quote the exclude pattern so the shell does not evaluate the glob.
- -S excl_pat
symlink the directories that match the given pattern. See Exclude Pattern for more details. This option can be repeated. You may need to quote the pattern to prevent the shell from swallowing the glob.
- -s excl_pat
if a directory matches the given pattern, recur inside of it instead of symlinking. See Exclude Pattern for more details. This is the opposite of the -S option, and can be used to undo it or the SYMLINK_DIRS setting in your rcrc(5) configuration. It can be repeated, and the pattern may need to be quoted to protect it from your shell.
- -t TAG
list dotfiles according to TAG
- -U excl_pat
the rc files or directories matching this pattern will not be symlinked or created with a leading dot. See Exclude Pattern for more details. This option can be repeated. You may need to quote the pattern to prevent the shell from swallowing the glob.
- -u excl_pat
if an rc file or directory matches the given pattern, it must be dotted. See Exclude Pattern for more details. This is the opposite of the -U option, and can be used to undo it or the UNDOTTED setting in your rcrc(5) configuration. This option can be repeated. You may need to quote the pattern to prevent the shell from swallowing the glob.

increase verbosity. This can be repeated for extra verbosity.
- -x excl_pat
exclude the files that match the given pattern. See Exclude Pattern for more details. This option can be repeated. Quote the pattern if it contains a valid shell glob.
- files ...
only list the specified file(s)
The exclude pattern specifies a colon-separated pair of dotfiles directory and file glob. The dotfiles directory is optional and, if omitted, defaults to
*, which is a special token that matches any dotfiles directory. The file glob is relative to the dotfiles directory, ignoring meta directories. A colon combines them.
For example, to ignore all emacs-related items from the
thoughtbot-dotfiles directory, use the exclude pattern:
To ignore any
bash_profile file, use the pattern:
Or more simply:
Since exclude patterns are often valid shell globs, be sure to quote them. See the caveats noted in Bugs when using an exclude pattern.

For macOS systems, we strongly encourage the use of the HOSTNAME variable in your rcrc(5). We use the hostname(1) program to determine the unique identifier for the host. This program is not specified by POSIX and can vary by system. On macOS the hostname is unpredictable, and can even change as part of the DHCP handshake.
There are a few bugs around shell globs. Anything involving an exclude pattern is unpredictable, so use -v when dealing with patterns. Specifically, globs may expand at any time and remain expanded for the duration of the run, which means they cannot be applied more than once.
