Yikes!  These won't do what you want because -x expects an argument
(also, the script is called `find_member', singular).  In the first
example, you're trying to exclude a list called `wheakory', which I
bet you don't have :).  Try something like:

% find_member -l mylist wheakory

The regular expression argument is specifically a Python regex (which
should be close enough to Perl5 regexs for you Perlies :).  For more
information do a `find_member -h'.

General note: -h on any of the bin scripts should print out usage
