1 Just to warn you... New findutils releases are starting to get a lot
2 more picky about being given correct arguments. The correct way to
3 invoke find to avoid problems is as follows:
5 find [paths] [options] [rules] [actions]
7 The [paths] part is mandatory, and the [options] (such as -maxdepth)
8 should come *before* any [rules].
