directory listing script


how do i write a simple script to list out only directories and
then pass the directories into a parameter one by one

while not_end_of_directory_list do
cd $directory
excute a command
cd..
end

so far, i can get the directory list
directory=`find . -type d`
but how do i pass in one by one and
also without the '"." in the $directory

thanks in advance
