is there a way to (de)select urls that begin or end with a given string? '*.jpg' seems to be equivalent with '.jpg' or '*.jpg*'. ok this mask finds all jpg-images in the queue, but also urls like 'rate.php?file=filename.jpg&vote=1'.
i'm especially searching for a way to exclude urls ending on /r1, /r2, /r3, /r4, /r5, /r6, /r7, /r8, /r9, /r10 (without excluding e.g. /r1image.gif).

The first could be done using:


The second - /r[1-9]$ and /r10$

oh, one little addition on the 'select by mask'-function: after certain urls have been selected by a mask, could a second mask be applied only to the already marked urls instead of all urls? thus you could e.g. mark all .jpgs, invert the selection and apply another mask only to non-jpg urls. if you - by any chance - plan on implementing this, please don't forget to add a 'deselect by mask'-menu item ;)

No, selection will be not added. Sorry.
