I tried in every way to exclude files starting with ~$ (example ~$doc.xlsx) within the directories with no success with --exclude-file. I try \\~$, *~$, ~$, ~$, //~$, //**//~$, ~$*. What is wrong ?What is the correct form?
I think I found the answer: “Environment-variables in exclude files are expanded with os.ExpandEnv, so
/home/$USER/foo will be expanded to
/home/bob/foo for the user
bob . To get a literal dollar sign, write
$ to the file.”
