How do I list the contents of a directory with Dart?


I would like to list all the contents of a directory (on the file system) using Dart. How can I do this?


The API has changed and I have updated the async code for M4 release (0.5.16_r23799 ):

Future<List<FileSystemEntity>> dirContents(Directory dir) {
  var files = <FileSystemEntity>[];
  var completer = Completer<List<FileSystemEntity>>();
  var lister = dir.list(recursive: false);
  lister.listen ( 
      (file) => files.add(file),
      // should also register onError
      onDone:   () => completer.complete(files)
  return completer.future;
