The "add" command:

Usage: fossil add ?OPTIONS? FILE1 ?FILE2 ...?

Make arrangements to add one or more files or directories to the current checkout at the next commit.

When adding files or directories recursively, filenames that begin with "." are excluded by default. To include such files, add the "--dotfiles" option to the command-line.

The --ignore and --clean options are comma-separated lists of glob patterns for files to be excluded. Example: '*.o,*.obj,*.exe' If the --ignore option does not appear on the command line then the "ignore-glob" setting is used. If the --clean option does not appear on the command line then the "clean-glob" setting is used.

If files are attempted to be added explicitly on the command line which match "ignore-glob", a confirmation is asked first. This can be prevented using the -f|--force option.

The --case-sensitive option determines whether or not filenames should be treated case sensitive or not. If the option is not given, the default depends on the global setting, or the operating system default, if not set.

Options:

--case-sensitive BOOL
Override the case-sensitive setting.
--dotfiles
include files beginning with a dot (".")
-f|--force
Add files without prompting
--ignore CSG
Ignore unmanaged files matching patterns from the Comma Separated Glob (CSG) pattern list
--clean CSG
Also ignore files matching patterns from the Comma Separated Glob (CSG) list
--reset
Reset the ADDED state of a checkout, such that all newly-added (but not yet committed) files are no longer added. No flags other than --verbose and --dry-run may be used with --reset.

The following options are only valid with --reset:

-v|--verbose
Outputs information about each --reset file.
-n|--dry-run
Display instead of run actions.
