traverse web folder list

can anyone point me to an example of some code that traverses a web folder? I'm specifically looking at sharepoint 1.0 document library, and am just trying to generate a list of all the documents in the library, like:

\bla\stuff\document1.doc
\blah\stuff\morestuff\document2.doc

If this is possible with the command line or somehow with windows without doing any programming, please let me know! 

thanks!

"If this is possible with the command line or somehow with windows without doing any programming, please let me know!"

so you're looking for a big red button to push that does all the work for you?  I doubt you'll find a button for this one..

WebFolders are documents shared over WebDAV (WebDAV is an extension to http).  Instead of sending an http "GET /bla/stuff" request you would send a "PROPFIND /bla/stuff" request.  The response you get from that request would be an XML string that contained a list of 'resources' with information about each resource.  check out http://webdav.org.
