I've configured Emacs to open files named
*.cfg in shell-script-mode. These are config files, of course, rather than shell scripts, but 90% of the time it does what I want (mainly, good guesses about faces for comments and variable assignment). I use flycheck-mode, and I like it enough to have
global-flycheck-mode enabled. The problem is that, in the case of
*.cfg files, flycheck-mode suggests lots of errors that aren't relevant.
Is there a way to disable flycheck-mode automagically based on either file name or the path to the file? The closest I've seen is flycheck-before-syntax-check-hook...I could imagine sticking in a check for path or filename, but it runs before each syntax check (rather than disabling checks entirely).
