Path struct, and directory walker - filepath.d
I haven't had time to finish this project, and I don't think I will.  The
attached file is the start of a struct for manipulating paths, and some classes
to foreach over a directory tree.  These are intended for linux.  If somebody
wants to pick these up and run with them go for it!  I retain no rights to these
modules.

For somebody whose name I haven't seen here before, I have to say, I 
like the way you write D code.

I'd like to take over, but there are younger and more talented -- and 
more Linux savvy guys here, to do it better.

----

FOR EVERYBODY ELSE:

I bet there are thousands of guys reading this NG, who haven't made any 
noise or who haven't submitted code. I bet quite a few of you don't want 
to do it "because the code should be polished, look like written by some 
 long time D expert", well commented, or otherwise "better than your 
own normal code".

I want you guys to know, that the D community is glad to receive even 
half-written stuff, anytime you feel (like S did) that you don't have 
the time to "finish" it.

(Be it a single class, a single method, half a module, or just a 
skeleton of a concept. Or just maybe a part of any of those.)

----

Besides, submitting code, or even fragments of code, is the way to get a 
permanent plaque in the Hall of Contributors. Compare that to those who 
have contributed to the syntax, the morale, the direction of development 
-- none of them will ever get mentioned anywhere, even after half a decade.

Nice. I can use this stuff. I'll post it to the Wiki (
http://www.prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?PublicCode/DirWalker )to allow
access and updates.

I made a typo.  I fixed it on your wiki.  The code needs linux.errno.d 
which I also posted.  Hopefully that makes it into phobos.
