Usage notes

  • The value of Compress file patterns uses regular expression syntax:
    • Period (.) matches a single occurrence of any character (letter or number).
    • Asterisk (*) matches zero or more occurrences of the preceding character, up to the maximum file name length.
    • Backslash (\) is the escape character that means that the next character is interpreted literally.
    • Dollar sign ($) means that a match signifies the end of the expression.
  • Characters in the value are case-sensitive. For example, .*PDF$,.*AFP$ represent patterns that are different from .*pdf$,.*afp$.
  • Separate multiple patterns by commas; do not type a space between them.
