Options for .hidden files?

view full story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – What options do exists for the .hidden file. I wanted to hide certain filetypes in a folder, but simply putting *.out (which I assumed would hide all files ending in .out) didn't work :( I'm using Nautilus. UPDATE: I guess if this option doesn't exist a bash shell could be created that when executed in a directory finds all files with matching endings and writes them to the .hidden file. I don't have any experience with the command-line but I'll try this :). (HowTos)
