PS. Running on a A64 with dual processors on an ext3 LVM disk.

I'm willing to help solve/test if you can help me setup and compile the find
source code.
Comment 2 Miloslav Trmač 2006-10-04 13:17:20 EDT
Shell command lines undergo pathname expansion before being passed to find(1), so
the second find(1) command is equivalent to
(find . -name PublicDomain)
