Show/hideSyntax

--select=select_options

Where select_options is a list of patterns to match. Use special characters to select multiple fields:

  • Use a comma-separated list to specify multiple fields, for example:

    a*,b*,c*

  • Use the wildcard character * to match any name.

  • Use the wildcard character ? to match any single letter.

  • Prefix the select_options string with + to specify the fields to include. This is the default behavior.

  • Prefix the select_options string with ~ to specify the fields to exclude.

If you are using a special character on Unix platforms, you must enclose the options in quotes to prevent the shell expanding the selection.
