NAME

findrule - command line wrapper to File::Find::Rule

CONTENTS

USAGE



  findrule [path...] [expression]



DESCRIPTION

findrule mostly borrows the interface from GNU find(1) to provide a command-line interface onto the File::Find::Rule heirarchy of modules.

The syntax for expressions is the rule name, preceded by a dash, followed by an optional argument. If the argument is an opening parenthesis it is taken as a list of arguments, terminated by a closing parenthesis.

Some examples:



 find -file -name ( foo bar )



files named foo or bar, below the current directory.



 find -file -name foo -bar



files named foo, that have pubs (for this is what our ficticious bar clause specifies), below the current directory.



 find -file -name ( -bar )



files named -bar, below the current directory. In this case if we’d have omitted the parenthesis it would have parsed as a call to name with no arguments, followed by a call to -bar.

    Supported switches

I’m very slack. Please consult the File::Find::Rule manpage for now, and prepend - to the commands that you want.

    Extra bonus switches

findrule automatically loads all of your installed File::Find::Rule::* extension modules, so check the documentation to see what those would be.
