thank you, but this solution is quite tedious to type, especially when
already having a complicated search construct (ie combination with
-prune). And I don't see how I could create an alias for this.

a) find(1) is a tool with looong history and many scripts rely on its behavior,
b) compatibility with other implementations, and
c) the POSIX specification

thank you, I appreciate the explanation.
For my personal use, I would prefer having trailing slash after
directories by default, even if that breaks some pure idea of POSIX
standard compatibility

Could somebody please advise, if there is some easy way to patch this

thank you
