Batch Tab -> Filemasks
Both “File mask” and “Exclude files” fields let you enter
multiple masks, separated by semicolons. During the processing,
HTML Cleaner checks all files in a given directory for a match.
When a file is found, the program tries to match its filename to
the pattern entered in the “File mask” text input field. If either
mask matches the filename, the file is considered to comply with
the selection criteria. If this is the case, the filename is
checked against each mask entered into the “Exclude files” field;
if a match is found, the file will be skipped, otherwise it will be
Each literal character must match a single character in the

Each set begins with an opening bracket [ and ends with a
closing bracket ]. The brackets enclose the elements of the set.
Each element is a literal character or a range. Ranges are
specified by an initial value, a dash (-), and a final value. Do
not use spaces or commas to separate the elements of the set. A set
must match a single character in the string. The character matches
the set if it is the same as one of the literal characters in the
set, or if it belongs to a range of the set. A character belongs to
a range if it matches the initial value or the final value, or is
between these two values. All comparisons are case-insensitive. If
the first character after the opening bracket of a set is an
exclamation point (!), then the set matches any character that is
not in the set.
Do not use Unicode characters within
sets. They are unsupported within sets and will cause an
error. However, you may use Unicode characters outside sets just
like any other characters, without any special requirements.
Wildcards are asterisks (*) or question marks (?). An asterisk
matches any number of characters. A question mark matches a single
