Thank you for an excellent alternative answer. It is a shame that I cannot accept two answers.

comment Passing multiple directories to the -prune option in find
My script above works and does what I want it to. I simply wanted to know whether there was a neater way than \( -path "dir1" -o -path "dir2" ... -o -path "dirN" \) -prune to exclude certain directories from the recursive search that find does. I am not searching for anything within files but rather deleting certain files and avoiding certain directories in my search path. I do not understand what your script is trying to do either. So, it appears we have a miscommunication. Sorry. Let us leave it at that.

comment How can I list LS_COLORS in colour?
@Stéphane Gimenez: Your expansion of abbreviations at that weblink is very helpful. I have three abbreviations, rs, ca, and mh that are not included above. Can you please tell me where to find their expansions? Thanks

@Stéphane Gimenez: I was directed here from my related question here: unix.stackexchange.com/questions/52659/… . Your expansion of abbreviations is very helpful. I have three abbreviations, rs, ca and mh that are not included above. Can you please tell me where to find their expansions? Thanks.

comment How can I list LS_COLORS in colour?
Thank you. I remember only the file extensions showing up in their respective colours. I need to do some digging up to understand what IFS is though.

comment How can I list LS_COLORS in colour?
This is what I recall; I might be wrong. If not that command, then some other similar command allowed me to see the extensions listed in the colours they would display in. That much I remember seeing. The question is what command shows output similar to dircolors but in the respective colours? Sorry for the bother.
