Thanks for your interest in QRecall.
The ability to filter files during a capture is an oft requested feature, and it's already pretty high on the "to do" list. It is, unfortunately, held up for a couple of practical reasons (there are other features higher on the "to do" list) and for technical reasons, but I anticipate this feature will appear in QRecall 2.2.
QRecall 2.0 does have the ability to exclude individual files and folders using capture preferences. These can be set in the Finder (using the Capture Preferences service) or from the command line. Using the command line tool, you can kind-of-sort-of-almost get the effect you're looking for by setting the "exclude" preference en masse.
For example, if you want to exclude all of your *.class files you could use something like this:
The limitation with the exclude preference is that it is attached to the file. If your compiler deletes a .class file and then creates a new one, the exclude preference gets discarded along with the original file.
For situations like that, a more persistent setting would be to exclude the contents of the folders containing those .class files, either surgically or doing something crass like this:
Note the exclude contents variant; this tells QRecall to capture the folder (and its metadata), but exclude all of the items contained in that folder.
I hope that helps, for now. Keep an eye on this space for a beta of the next version of QRecall, which may or many not have the features you're looking for.
