Dear List,

I am making a list of all the files in a folder and I want to exclude
one file called "proj.current".  This is the 31st file in a folder.
Currently I use the command:

tdirs <- list.files(pattern="proj.")[-31]

However I would like to exclude it based on its name and not the position.

Any advice would be useful.
