HistoryExclude?

Is there any one entry I can put into the HistoryExclude variable which will exclude all invocations of a file? Using the help's example,

HistoryExclude=del;free;f:\windows\system32\notepad.exe;mydir

I still get a history entry if I issue "notepad" or "notepad.exe".

When I view the post quoted above on the web, I see, in the HistoryExclude line, a space between "notepa" and "d.exe". After posting it I edited it to make sure the spave was not there and the space does not appear in the quoted version. Still the space appears on the web version.

I should have said the space does not appear in the quote while in the editor, but the space does appear in the web version of the quotation.

Don't specify the path. The HistoryExclude test does a wildcard match
on the command names; if you specify a path it will *not* match a
command missing the path.

Recommend you say something like that in the help.
