i know it has a gui with avastgui but i want it to run at early morning when i sleep so i need to set it as a cron job

avast -a -c --continue=31 /home/user -r=*/var/log/avast_loggs.txt

so how do i set the exclusions for the command line?

I have the exclusions set in ~/.avast/avastrc using the avastgui but they do not apply to the command line so how do i make them?

You could try looking at 'avast --help' or 'man avast'.
