What is the best way to walk a directory of files?
It would be nice is I could just:
Get next file?
exitst? ifFalse then done
match pattern? ifFalse, then go to first step
This requires that the method track where I am. I think I can figure
out how to stuff them into a collection, and return the entire
collection of matched files, and perhaps that's the right answer, but
that's not the way I would do it in Python or Ruby, so perhaps it's also
not the way to do it in Smalltalk.
Also, if it matters, the files will be utf-8 files, many of them with
BOMs. (Well, not really BOMs, since it's utf8, but the utf8 header.)
Does Squeak recognize BOM headers?
