It looks like adding a print statement will throw the output into
literal mode of some sort.  Anyhow, that's not how the output should be
made, since a view should be used and at least a minimal tt file.  When
I chomp the directory lines otained with 'ls -l' and use a simple tt
file using <pre> and a view, everything is fine.  But if I add a print
statement in the model's method, then even the <pre> tags are shown in
the browser.

So since I learn Catalyst and I should be using views, then this
behaviour of a print statement is not very important.
