   In what way they are better? I found 'find' to be quite capable, and
find -exec grep '{}' \+
   to be quite fast.

   In my opinion all those small utilities are pets of their authors and
they solve their problems quite good... but not mine. GNU utilities are
used by a huge number of people and solve much wider problems much
better. Though not necessary in a much more elegant way ;-)

           Programmers don't die, they just GOSUB without RETURN.
