You could use [shell] from ggee to get the directory listing, and then
[glue] and [lister] from zexy to create a dynamically sized list.
Something like:


And then connect the outlet of lister to the right inlet of glue to
recursively grow the list.

For the sort of processing you want though, it might be better to use
some kind of shell script (bash, perl etc) which you just call from the
PD [shell] object and pick up the results.
