Elementary Problem with find
Tue Oct 21 14:54:00 GMT 1997
This is, more than likely, a true newbie problem. I've searched the
back issues of the mailing list, and there are no other reports of
this problem. So, it's probably just me; but just in case...
find is failing to take valid command strings. I am running b18 under
find . -name *.c -print
The cygwin32 version gives the following error:
FIND: Parameter format not correct
Running this same command on my Linux box gives the appropriate file
I have also tried variations on this same theme:
find <absolute path name (with both '\' and '/')> -name *.c -print
find -name *.c -print /* no starting pathname; use present */
/* directory as default. */
find . -name "*.c" -print
find . -name '*.c' -print
The most interesting was:
find "<absolute pathname>" -name *.c -print
find ignored what was in quotes and interpretted everything else as
Any suggestions on this?
