    gci and -include and -exclude

    I am trying get a limited set of files from a directory tree. The following is what i want but it doesn't work. I get
    everything.


    get-childitem -LiteralPath \rm5_0_code_h\source -include *.frm,*.ctl,*.bas,*.cls,*.cs,*.cpp,*.hpp,*.sql,*.java -Recurse


    I have even tried to exclude what i don't want but it doesn't seem to matter.

    get-childitem -LiteralPath $path -include *.frm,*.ctl,*.bas,*.cls,*.cs,*.cpp,*.hpp,*.sql,*.java -recurse -exclude
    *alter*.sql,*.dll,*.pdb,*.ncb,*.tlb,*.scc,*.bmp,*.ico

    i still get them all. what am i doing wrong?

    you have to ask for all files and then filter with the include. Example:
    ls * -include *.exe #ask for all files in the actual dir and then apply
    the filter.

    You miss the first *
