I agree that this algorithm can work. But it does not fit to my imaginations
for efficient data processing.

If the desired directory on which a file filter should be applied
could be selected before, the file names would not contain references
to this directory and another function call is therefore unnecessary
to remove it from the returned list elements.

The difference can eventually better seen by an approach like the following.

~/Projekte> ls Bau/*txt
~/Projekte> cd Bau && ls *txt

I would like to achieve the second list result without using
the command “cd” before.
