Building the Tree command


I'm needing help for the following:

Write a program that prints out a directory tree using a for loop within a function.
The function should call itself when it encounters a directory and then work on listing the contents of that directory.
The function should accept the directory to search as a parameter.

I need to be able to do this without using ls -l -r.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thank you!

Well first off, the interesting question is this: in what language do you desire to do this?
