file-pattern-unc-domains: preference variable

Default value: ""

Under Windows, file pattern matching can operate on UNC file names like \\server\share\filename to retrieve matching server names (when the file name pattern looks like \\s*, for instance). On some large local networks, it may be desirable to restrict matching to particular domains for faster completion.

If this variable is nonempty, it must contain a file name pattern, a |-separated list of domain names that can use * to match any number characters, ? to match a single character, or [a-z] to match a range of characters. Only server names from domains in this list will be retrieved. For instance, if this variable is set to EAST*|MAIN, servers in the domains EASTROOM, EASTANNEX, and MAIN would be listed, but not those in the domain WEST. (Server names aren't the same as domain names; this example setting would permit a server named \\room17, for instance, if it happened to be the EASTANNEX domain.)

Set this variable to the special setting list-domains, and Epsilon will display a list of domains on your network in a separate window the next time you complete on server names (by running dired on the pattern \\, for instance).
