[R] file.choose but for folder/directory?

Hello there,

This question is relative to WindowsXP, using R 2.2.1:

I am looking for a function that allows a user to interactively choose a directory so I can use list.files to process all the files in that directory. I've looked at getwd, but this is not interactive. The functions file.choose and choose.files are the right idea, but these only permit selection of a file within a folder, not the folder itself.

Thanks for any and all suggestions,
