Exclude updating apps software using yum

I only know how to exclude kernel from updating using yum, which is yum --exclude=kernel update. But how to exclude other apps. from update using yum. Let say I want to exclude xmms. Is the command the same? yum --exclude=xmms update?

Read the man page. From 'man yum':

Exclude a specific package by name or glob from updates on all
Configuration Option: exclude
