This library provides a couple methods for quickly finding any file in a given project. It depends on GNU find.

A project is found by searching up the directory tree until a file is found that matches ‘ffip-project-file’. (”.git/.svn/.hg” by default.) By default, it looks only for files whose names match ‘ffip-patterns’,

If you have so many files that it becomes unwieldy, you can set ‘ffip-find-options’ to a string which will be passed to the ‘find’ invocation in order to exclude irrelevant subdirectories. For instance, in a Ruby on Rails project, you may be interested in all .rb files that don’t exist in the “vendor” directory. In that case you could set ‘ffip-find-options’ to “-not -regex \”.vendor.\””.

All these variables may be overridden on a per-directory basis in your .dir-locals.el. See Directory Variables for details.
