information about a folder in unix


i have my IS installed in Unix box, i want to get the information about a folder or a drive in Unix system into Wm Developers pipeline. The information must be the same which we get while typing a dir or ls command in command prompt.

Create or use a service that uses the method. If you want to use a filter, for example to match filenames using wildcards, you can find the code to do that on the 'net.

The PSUtilities package, downloadable from Advantage, has a service to get a list of files and uses JZOOWildcardFilter for wildcard matching.
