       git-clean - Remove untracked files from the working tree

       git clean [-d] [-f] [-n] [-q] [-e <pattern>] [-x | -X] [--] <path>...

       Cleans the working tree by recursively removing files that are not under version control,
       starting from the current directory.

       Normally, only files unknown to Git are removed, but if the -x option is specified,
       ignored files are also removed. This can, for example, be useful to remove all build

       If any optional <path>... arguments are given, only those paths are affected.

	   Remove untracked directories in addition to untracked files. If an untracked directory
	   is managed by a different Git repository, it is not removed by default. Use -f option
	   twice if you really want to remove such a directory.

       -f, --force
	   If the Git configuration variable clean.requireForce is not set to false, git clean
	   will refuse to run unless given -f or -n.

       -n, --dry-run
	   Don't actually remove anything, just show what would be done.

       -q, --quiet
	   Be quiet, only report errors, but not the files that are successfully removed.

       -e <pattern>, --exclude=<pattern>
	   In addition to those found in .gitignore (per directory) and $GIT_DIR/info/exclude,
	   also consider these patterns to be in the set of the ignore rules in effect.

	   Don't use the standard ignore rules read from .gitignore (per directory) and
	   $GIT_DIR/info/exclude, but do still use the ignore rules given with -e options. This
	   allows removing all untracked files, including build products. This can be used
	   (possibly in conjunction with git reset) to create a pristine working directory to
	   test a clean build.

	   Remove only files ignored by Git. This may be useful to rebuild everything from
	   scratch, but keep manually created files.
