Currently the --table option accept a regexp.
Although its format isn't documented anywhere it currently does not accept pattern negation.
It means it only allow specifying a white-list of table rather than blacklisting tables based on a pattern.
But the later is very useful in the real-life. Ex: excluding table matching '^(cache|log)'.
Could you consider improving the regexp engine so that perlre could be used, or alternatively accept another --exclude parameter.
Side note: in many use case, having the possibility to dump table structure (no-data) for a regexp-defined subset of table is also very useful.
Best regards and thank for the great work!
