+ * FileFinder can be used without changes to provide a list of the files
+ * and directories in a file hierarchy starting from a specified point.
+ * This list can be filtered by hierarchy depth and using a
+ * {@link IOFileFilter file filter}.
+ * <p>
+ * Commons IO supplies many common filter implementations in the
+ * <code>filefilter</code> package, see {@link FileFilterUtils}.
+ * You can also create your own custom implementation, such as in the
+ * file cleaner example below.
