[erlang-questions] file finders

Has anybody written a decent "file finder" in Erlang. Something like the
unix 'find' command.

I want something that:

    - traverse the file system recursively
    - applies a function to any filename that matches a regexp
    - correctly handles symlinks
    - should work on all platforms

I'd like to follow symlinks, but not when they result in a circular path.

I thought I had one, but it turns out not to correctly handle symlinks
