Resharper Command Line Utilities: DupFinder.exe

So I've started playing with the command line utility DupeFinder.exe, and

have noticed a couple of things.  I may just be making mistakes here, or

there may be problems in functionality... so I'm posting here hoping for a

little guidance.


I've used the "/exclude:*Text.cs" option to try and exclude all .cs file

that end in "Test", but a lot are still getting through.  Is that syntax

right?  There are no examples anywhere I could find.  I tried a space

initially and got an error, so changed it to a colon, and it SEEMED to work,

except a great many "*Test.cs" files got through.


Also, is there any way to exclude all files under a given folder?


And finally, the output... I didn't find the ".xsl" folder you said was

included in the zip file, so I copied from the documentation I found here:




I then had to add a line to each output .xml file manually (any way to have

that line just be "there"?  Like, specify the xsl file name on the command

line just like we specify the output file name with the /output:filename



The resulting xml file could only be open and viewed in Firefox.  The latest

IE just shows a mash of text, and the latest Chrome just shows a blank page.

I'm assuming this should work in all browsers... was it only tested in



Any more help or tips on using this rather interesting and amazing tool

would be appreciated.  I'm just using it from the command line, on my local

box, not as part of any CI development process or MSBuild script, if that's
