comment find usage with -L
WOW! Why is this subtle concept not well illustrated on man pages (unless I missed it)? This is a big surprise for me.

comment find usage with -L
"The name of the file is not one of its properties" I did not know that. Any such other attributes of files which are not considered properties? To be honest I am still skeptical and would wait what others have to say.

comment find usage with -L
Can you explain taking my example? What I understand is this: In my example find starts its search. It encounters ./link, since -L is in effect it dereferences it and takes the properties of ./file. It compares name of ./file with pattern 'link' and since it does not match, should not report any o/p. Whats wrong with my reasoning?
