get all files from a directory and pass the files for processing

Hi All,
I have a directory in which there will be several files. i want to get all the files and pass it to a piece of code for processing on the files.
This is the piece of code which does the processing.

Code:
 
tr "\n" "|" < (log file name) | tr "$" "\n" > output
echo '  ' >>output
 while read line
 do
 sh ParseLog.sh "$line"
 echo $?
 done<output

say i have a directory /user/resin_log , how to get all the files in this directory and pass one by one to this piece of code. Saw a similar query, but couldnt derive anything from that. Please Help. Thanks in advance.

done it with this piece of code. Thank you
Code:
 
ls -lurt /user/resin_log | awk -F ' ' '{print $9}' > file_list
while read line
do
file_name=$line
tr "\n" "|" < (log file name) | tr "$" "\n" > output
echo '  ' >>output
while read line
do
sh ParseLog.sh "$line"
echo $?
done<output
fi
 done <file_list
