--- Comment #1 from Philip Hazel <ph10@???> ---
It works for me. But I can only test on a Linux box, not windows. Here is an
example: my current directory has 3 sub directories called a, b, and c; each
contains a single file also called a, b, and c:

$ ls *
a:
a

b:
b

c:
c

If I do a recursive search, it finds all the files:

$ pcre2grep -r '....' *
a/a:aaaa
b/b:bbbb
c/c:cccc

But I can use --include-dir to restrict the search to certain directories, in
this case, those not begining with 'b':

$ pcre2grep -r --include-dir='^[^b]' '....' *
a/a:aaaa
c/c:cccc

So I'm going to close this issue. If you have evidence that it doesn't work on
Windows, please re-open and I will appeal for a Windows expert to see what is
wrong.
