comment missing argument to find -exec
If you use xargs in combination with find, use -print0 etc. to sanitize against blanks etc. in filenames, so in general it is much more easy to use -exec instead, or, for rm, just -delete.

comment missing argument to find -exec
Rafael T: If you refer to MS-DOS and Windows, which use backslashes instead of slashes, please note, that UNIX is the older one, so if somebody is using something instead, it is the other way round.

@Alexios: If you find an example (except from being a masochist) where the masking of the braces is useful, please provide it as an answer to my question here - afaik this hint is outdated and only a relict in the manpage. I've never seen an example where find /tmp/ -exec ls {} + wouldn't work.

comment Which programming language is best to begin with as a total beginner?
@Levon: I'm not arguing for C here - au contraire! I'm criticizing the way the argument is presented in a biased way. The intention to make C look bad is obvious if you know a little C. That doesn't mean that I would suggest C over Python. You can read my answer to see what I suggest.
