Multiple Patterns
clean-sensitive-data --pattern **/node_modules/**/package.json --pattern node_modules/@scope/**/package.json
Using alias
clean-sensitive-data -p **/node_modules/**/package.json -p node_modules/@scope/**/package.json

By default clean-sensitive-data only shows a message on finishing processing all the files found using the provided patterns.

On setting verbose argument it will show a lot of more information about all the files being processed, package.json information before stripping data, after stripping data...
