file-pattern-ignore-directories: preference variable

Default value: ""

In a wildcard file pattern, a directory name ** stands for a hierarchy of directories. Epsilon recursively matches every directory within that hierarchy. This variable may be used to keep directories with certain names from being included. It contains a list of file name patterns, separated by | characters. Each pattern uses basic file name pattern syntax: * matches any number of characters, ? matches one, and [a-z] specifies a character range. If a directory in the hierarchy matches this pattern, Epsilon will skip over it. For instance, .*|*old makes Epsilon skip over any directory ending in "old" or starting with a . character.
