Guile 100 challenge #2: `ls'

Hello Guilers,

Challenge #2 in the Guile 100 Programs Project is to write a version
of the Posix program ls. ls is a program that lists the files in a
directory, and it is the second challenge in this month's theme,
which is "/bin - reimplementing common Posix tools".

The completed version need only support the standard flags -a -l and -R

The Guile 100 Programs Project is an attempt to collaboratively
generate a set of examples of how to use the GNU Guile implementation
of Scheme.

This one might be interesting, because, I don't think Guile contains
the ability to gather all the information necessary to emulate "ls -l".

To help ensure that each challenge has at least one completed
implementation, an "official volunteer" will be chosen at random
those that have expressed interest in the project.  If that
volunteer can complete the task in two weeks, he or she
will receive a 
bounty of 100 USD.  The official volunteer for this
week's challenge 
will be chosen on Wednesday Mar 20.

For more information, check out the project's website at
To request to join the project as a potential official volunteer, or
otherwise contact the project, contact me or
