Renaming Exclusion List 

Visual Studio 2005

This section provides a dynamic way to fine tune the renaming of the input assemblies. It can contain a list of “exclusion rules” that are applied at runtime. If a rule selects a given class, method, or field, then that item is not renamed.

These rules are applied in addition to rules implied by global options such as the library option.

The rules are logically ORed together, so any item that is selected by at least one rule is not renamed.

The exclusion list has support for excluding names by type, method, field, assembly, module, or namespace.

Each type of rule is explained in detail in the section on identifier renaming.
