Hi Tage,

>Make your own find:
>bash$ cd .../gnuwin32/b18/H-i386-cygwin32/bin
>bash$ cp find.exe gnufind.exe
>bash$ cd /...
>bash$ gnufind . -name *.c -print
>Find all instances of the word "include" in .h files:
>bash$ gnufind . -name *.h -exec grep include {} \; -print
>This will work!

It might work, but it would be better to get used to

     (gnu)find . -name "*.c" -print
     (gnu)find . -name "*.h" -exec grep include {} \; -print
                       ^   ^
