 * This filter accepts <code>Files that are directories.
 * <p>
 * For example, here is how to print out a list of the 
 * current directory's subdirectories:
 * <pre>
 * File dir = new File(".");
 * String[] files = dir.list( DirectoryFileFilter.INSTANCE );
 * for ( int i = 0; i < files.length; i++ ) {
 *     System.out.println(files[i]);
 * }
