I have source directories in my Perl project, the contents of which I have no control over. This source, when compiled, yields well over 100 compiler warnings (function/variable redefinitions), but actually runs fine. It would be nice to have a way to tell EPIC to "ignore" this directory (e.g., not syntax-check its contents). This would:

1. Shorten the Error/Warning list considerably, allowing me to focus on the problems I have control over.
2. Speed up EPIC's syntax checking by having it work on fewer files (and not on files with over 100 warnings!). The syntax checking can be slow at times (on my machine at least), so this would help with that problem.
