The syntax of the Pattern field is:

  <list of filetypes> ; <patterns to match>

Filetypes are expressed as 3-digit hex numbers, eg FFF for text or FFB
for BASIC. Multiple filetypes can be specified, seperated by spaces. To
accept all filetypes use '*' for the filetype.

The patterns are the same as those in ModeWhen files and are used to
match filenames. Two wildcards are supported '*' and '**'.

The '*' wildcard matches anything except '.' while '**' matches all.
Together they provide a simple yet powerful way of matching filenames.
Specifying '**' on its own will match all filenames.

To load all Basic files use: FFB ; **
This will recurse into any subdirectories. If this is unwanted then
specify the top directory in the pattern: FFB ; **.<top directory>.*
(without the angle brackets).
