I had a rather annoying directory: ".cache-loader" which is filled with junk and when I am acking, I get huge blobs of logs and cache files that I don't want to see.
I saw in the man, for --ignore-dir=, "The DIRNAME must always be a simple directory name. Nested directories like foo/bar are NOT supported."
I did not know if that meant --ignore-dir should not be a full path such as /Users/me/path/to/.cache-loader ?
And if instead it should just be --ignore-dir=.cache-loader
Regardless, when I have put either of these in my ~/.ackrc file, I still am seeing endless screen scrolling of junk from .cache-loader come up when I ack, and it's making me sad.
Thank you for any guidance.
