Sending again, with a tad more explanation....

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

Here's one way, Jon:

find . -type d -name myDirName | while read D; do find "$D" -type d -name
mySubDirName; done

That assumes that the directories are known to lie below the current
directory. You could substitute . with / or some directory name, of course.
