Documented in use_build_ignore

#' Add files to `.Rbuildignore`
#'
#' @description
#' `.Rbuildignore` has a regular expression on each line, but it's
#' usually easier to work with specific file names. By default,
#' `use_build_ignore()` will (crudely) turn a filename into a regular
#' expression that will only match that path. Repeated entries will be
#' silently removed.
#'
#' `use_build_ignore()` is designed to ignore *individual* files. If you
#' want to ignore *all* files with a given extension, consider providing
#' an "as-is" regular expression, using `escape = FALSE`; see examples.
#'
#' @param files Character vector of path names.
#' @param escape If `TRUE`, the default, will escape `.` to
#'   `\\.` and surround with `^` and `$`.
#' @export
#' @examples
#' \dontrun{
#' # ignore all Excel files
#' use_build_ignore("[.]xlsx$", escape = FALSE)
#' }
