How does one access the information returned from a dir-command? After


I can do



but any attempt to retrieve the information *within* failed.[1] returns a syntax error, or{1} return 'can't
perform indexing operations for cs-list type', nth(, 1) returns the
help text of nth().

I know I can circumvent the problem by using readdir() and then lstat()ing
the names myself, but I figured there has to be a way to Do What I Want
:-). Can someone please help me out?
