Thanks, I've already got cygwin installed, this is where I've got my GNU find.exe from.
I'm currently working on the correct syntax of how to use the GNU find.exe in my script so that it properly uses it once compiled INTO a single exe. I'll either post a full answer with syntax and compile commands or in a few hours issue a post to get further assistance. The answer I'm sure will be useful to a lot of people (and myself) so that the external dependency is gone and it offers a good solution that doesn't utilise the File::Find module.
