       Gendarme - Rule-based code analysis for Mono.


              This  file  is used to filter out defects from gendarme reports.
              It uses a line oriented file format where the  first  characters
              of the line control the interpretation of the line:
              # - means that the line is a comment.
              R: - if the full name of a rule to be filtered.
              A:  -  is  used  to filter out an assembly (the extension can be
              T: - is used to filter out a namespace qualified type name.
              M: - is used to filter out a method. It must  contain  the  full
              method name as it appears in the report.

       An  ignore-file  can be generated automatically (using gd2i) from a XML
       defect list produced by Gendarme.

              This file is used  in  conjunction  with  the  --set  option  to
              control  and configure the rules used by Gendarme. It contains a
              set of named rules (rule sets) and each rule set contains a list
              of  rules.  Rules  have  required  from  and include attributes,
              optional exclude and applyTo attributes, and optional  parameter
              child elements.

              The   from   attribute   is   the   path   of   a  dll  to  load
              ("Gendarme.Rules.BadPractice.dll").  Relative paths are relative
              to the gendarme executable.

              The  include attribute may be "*" to match every rule in the dll
              or a list of  rule  names  separated  by  '|'  ("WhizBangRule  |

              The  exclude  attribute is a list of rule names separated by '|'
              ("IckyRule").  These will override  any  rules  matched  by  the
              include attribute.

              The  applyTo attribute may be "all", "visible", or "nonvisible".
              If it is all (the default) then all types in the assemblies  are
              checked, if it is visible then only the externally visible types
              are checked, if  it  is  nonvisible  then  only  the  internally
              visible types are checked.

              The parameter child element is used to customize the behavior of
              a rule within a dll.  It has three  required  attributes:  rule,
              property,  and  value.  rule  is the name of the applicable rule
              ("AvoidSmallNamespaceRule"), property is the name  of  a  public
              property  in  the rule ("Minimum"), value is the value to assign
              to the property ("10").

              Used by debug versions of Gendarme to enable logging for  rules.
              A  config file will be generated automatically by the make file.
              To enable logging for a rule edit the config file, add a  switch
              using the rule's name, and set the value to 1.
