Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 113807
find and xargs complain about a missing single quote when none is given
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:53 EST
Description of problem: I just ran across this. It occurs on RHEL2.1
and RHL 7.2 both, but appears to work correctly on RHEL3.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -qf $(which xargs)
# find /home -type f | xargs ls -s
xargs: unmatched single quote
How reproducible: 100%
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run the above command on RHEL 2.1
One of your files has this quote in.
You probably meant to do:
find /home -type f -print0 | xargs -0 ls -s
