I believe an AppleScript along the lines:
    tell application "Finder"
        print contents of folder "full:path:to:folder"
    end tell
will do just what you want without any dialogs coming up.

To go recursively through all the sub-folders in the folder, you can either
do this in AppleScript printing files as you go, or, fish out the
sub-folders with Perl and send each one in turn to AppleScript for
