I am hoping I am failing to see the entry in the documentation due to...

Python, Java and Groovy (at least, probably other languages) have
functions for iterating over directory hierarchies, i.e. tree walkers /
visitors.  For example in Python:

	for root , directories , files in os.walk ( '.' ) :
		doStuff ( files )

I can see in std.file the tools needed to do this by hand, but I would
have thought in this day and age such a function should be in the
standard library.  Thus I am hoping I am just missing it...

Thanks.

Aha, I missed the SpanMode parameter and thought this function only dealt with the current directory without descending. (Note to self: must *read* the manual instead of just skimming it.)
