in thread Directories without recursion and exceptions

Thanx a lot for your reply!
Some more about my exceptions:
I've got program (scaner) whitch can scan directories with recursion but don't have --except parametr. So, if I want scan /home (except /home/user3) I must write:
./scaner /home/user1 /home/user2 /home/user4 /home/user5
But what if I have 100 users and 12 exceptions? And what if I want to scan / with 12 exceptions in /home 5 in /usr and some more?
I use my script and make list all directiories without unnecessary subdirectories (/home/user1/mail etc).
And I just wonder if is any smarter way to do it.

Yes, smart people know that fat arrow autoquotes the left argument. But why should you require your code to be maintained by smart people?
