#271 TaskList - Add file type mask


Task List plugin has an annoying habit of spewing four or five error messages every time it scans my project, because I include some binary files in the project. It would be nice if I could tell it to stop attempting to scan those files. Further, it shouldn't need to scan those files at all when I have asked it to Parse Buffer, yet it spews the errors on every scan, no matter which tab I have open, or which command I give it from the menu.

I have verified that the file is correctly detected as binary mode if I try to open it, and that binary isn't checked in the Task List -> Modes pane (in fact, it doesn't even appear in the list)

TaskList 2.4
jEdit 4.5pre1
Sun Java 1.6.0_29

Files are named like xxxx.bin.

    TaskList does a rather lame check for binary files. I need to do a little research to remember why it can't use the jEdit binary detection and to see if that can be changed.
