I know grep is probably involved in the answer to this, but Unixese is still not my strong point. All the posts I can find in the archives talk to finding file names but I need to locate a directory.

I know part of a directory name e.g. /myDirName/mySubDirName/ but I don't know exactly where in the IFS the little devil is. All I know is that someone didn't put it where they were supposed to! So using reular wildcard cnotalion it would be */myDirName/mySubDirName/ * that I'm looking for. It could be anywhere.

I could write a program to handle it but I figured on of the qshell gurus out there could probably set me straight much faster - of course it is Sunday but I lik=ve in hope!
