Returns an array of files/directories which are immediate childrens of the directory denoted by the absolute path of the receiver object. The order in which the names are returned is dependent on the file system (not necessarily alphabetic order). The special names "." and ".." are not returned.

The result is an array of File objects. If the receiver object is not a directory then the result is .nil.

Class FILE - listFiles method

do file over deepListFiles("c:\program files\oorexx\samples")
    say file

-- Depth first iteration
::routine deepListFiles
use strict arg directory, accumulator=(.List~new)
files = .File~new(directory)~listFiles
if files == .nil then return accumulator
do file over files
    if file~isDirectory then call deepListFiles file~absolutePath, accumulator
return accumulator
