A Perl enthusiast, I earn my living doing Unix/Linux system administration and light systems programming. In a former life I was an ALGOL systems programmer before finding my real love was for Unix. My education is scientific with a Master of Science degree.

comment How to set variables from find+exec?
You would use xargs from a pipe if you wanted to process multiple arguments (here, files) as a bundle to reduce the number of processes spawned. Terminating find with {} + produces the same effect. Neither are needed to generate the list of files you want.
