Follow-up Comment #7, bug #23920 (project findutils):
"shell pattern" does have a specific meaning; see
I don't understand your point here:
<< Note that the result line of an object differs depending on the given
search path, you have take care of this in your "-path" expressions.
find find1 ./find1 ~/find1 -type d -name "test1"
=> /root/find1/test1 (or /home/<user>/find1/test1)
The example presumably relates to the paragraph before it, but it doesn't use
Certainly -name 'foo/' will not match anything, since / is not part of the
basename of any file other than / and //. On the other hand "-path foo/"
will match something if ./foo/. exists and foo/ was a command line argument.
This behaviour is required by POSIX; see
However, maybe I misunderstood your point an so I'm responding to something
you didn't actually say.
