Bug in the examples!!!

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on July 10, 2006 05:18 PM
Actually the serach pattern for find command should be specified between single quotes like in:

find . -name '*.txt'

otherwise the pattern will be expanded by the shell and not by the find command and the examples will not work as expected
