file-pattern-rules: preference variable

Default value: 0

Bits in this variable make Epsilon skip over certain types of files when interpreting file wildcard patterns. The value FPAT_SKIP_FILE_SYMLINKS (1) makes Epsilon ignore symbolic links to files. The value FPAT_SKIP_DIR_SYMLINKS (2) makes Epsilon ignore symbolic links to directories. The value FPAT_SKIP_RECUR_SYMLINKS (4) makes Epsilon ignore symbolic links to directories only when expanding the ** syntax that searches entire hierarchies. Add the values to ignore multiple types of symbolic links.

Under Windows, Epsilon treats junctions and mount points the same as symbolic links to directories.

The value FPAT_PERMIT_NO_URLS (8) keeps file patterns that use URL syntax from matching anything.
