       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 products.

       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.
