RE: Searching the IFS



fixed

find -x / -type d | grep -i '/zendcore$'
ran pretty quickly (< 5 seconds) but this:

find -x / -type d | grep -i '/zendcore/htdocs$'

took nearly 4 minutes which seems odd. Anyway - I now know how to
limit to a single level down.

Agreed: that makes no sense. Something else on the machine slowed it down
at the wrong "moment," perhaps? I might be tempted to do a 3-out-of-5
comparison. But maybe not worth it.

If anyone can suggest a good starting point for learning this
gibberish I'd welcome hearing it.

I like the KornShell programming tutorial by Barry Rosenberg (ISBN
020156324X) very much. It was my intro to unix back when it was a new
publication (yipes, 1991), and has maintained its relevance. QSH seems to
be modeled after KornShell, though I have never seen that documented.

I'll order an IBM 401 for you right away. How would you like that shipped?
