I can't figure out how the find -not works.
Let's say that I would like to locate all .git dirs in the tree.
find -type d -iname .git
No problems, but then let's say that I have some dirs that I don't like to be included, in question they can be called "old" and "backup".
I could pipe to grep -v and that will work just fine.
find -type d -iname .git | grep -v old | grep -v backup
But when I browsed the man page for find I noticed that there is a -not, but I can't figure out how it is intended to work.
I tried like this, but he does not exclude the old dir.
find -type d -iname .git -not -iname old
How does the find -not work? Can I use it for this find of problem?
