Typo in find manpage

   I found the following typo in the find man page and thought I'd share:

      -atime n
             File was last accessed n*24 hours ago.  When  find  figures  out
             how  many  24-hour  *preiods*  ago the file was last accessed, any
             fractional part is ignored, so to match -atime +1, a file has to
             have been modified at least two days ago.

I quote: "...many 24-hour preiods..." this should be periods. I'm no good with patching etc, so I figured I contribute by revealing, let me know if I can do anything else... System information:

Distro: Fully Patched FC4
Findutils Version: 4.2.20-1
Manpage section with type: 1
