./pants filter [args]

Filter the input targets based on various criteria.

Most of the filtering options below are comma-separated lists of filtering criteria, with an implied logical OR between them, so that a target passes the filter if it matches any of the criteria in the list. A '-' prefix inverts the sense of the entire comma-separated list, so that a target passes the filter only if it matches none of the criteria in the list.

Each of the filtering options may be specified multiple times, with an implied logical AND between them.
