This would make the example even shorter:

var m = make(map[string][]string)
for _, file := range dir {
    if !file.IsDir() {
        fileName := file.Name()
        ext := filepath.Ext(fileName)

    }
}
for ext := range m { sort.Strings(m[ext]) }

Thanks for the replies! filepath.Ext()! Didn't occur to me to try that. It goes to show that the standard library really is pretty complete.

Dirk, I like the for ext := range m { sort.Strings(m[ext]) } solution then I wouldn't need to have a separate sort in each "print" function, it's much clearer that way.
