Description Eduard Benes 2010-11-26 08:44:16 EST
Manual page for find needs review and at least one minor correction. Following example from the manual does not work out-of-the-box:
       find / \
       \( -perm -4000 -fprintf /root/suid.txt %#m %u %p\n \) , \
       \( -size +100M -fprintf /root/big.txt %-10s %p\n \)

until you add apostrophe around print arguments as it is in RHEL 5 man pages:
       find / \
       \( -perm -4000 -fprintf /root/suid.txt '%#m %u %p\n' \) , \
       \( -size +100M -fprintf /root/big.txt '%-10s %p\n' \)

We can expect other similar typos around, so it should be checked.
