[.net] Listing of directory + subdirectories

I have run into real pain in the a** problem. I'm trying to list the contents of a directory, and all of its subdirectories, and all of the subdirectories contens, and so on. So far, I'm able to list the contents of one directory, but not every subdirectory in the directory.
foreach (System.IO.FileInfo Info in DirInfo.GetFiles())
{
System.Console.WriteLine(Info.Name);
}


How do I get the contents of all the subdirectories, and their subdirectories and so on to print to the console?

Use recursion.

void PrintFiles(System.IO.DirectoryInfo DirInfo){    foreach (System.IO.FileInfo Info in DirInfo.GetFiles())    {        System.Console.WriteLine(Info.Name);    }    foreach (System.IO.DirectoryInfo Info in DirInfo.GetDirectories())    {        PrintFiles(Info); // call PrintFiles again for this directory    }}

Not sure if I have the syntax right, regard it as pseudo code. :)
