in thread ignore list of files using readdir function

Put what you want to exclude or include into a file (eg. file1) one per line... Put the output of the directory contents into file2...
grep -i -v -f file1 file2
similarly if you wish to "match" everthing in file1 leave off the -v
grep -i -f file1 file2
the -i ignores case so leave that off if you wish an exact match (case sensitive)
grep -f file1 file2
the first file after the -f is always the "from" file
