in reply to Useful addition to Perl?

This may not always work for large number of files or huge directory trees, but I often use something like
perl -ne 'print if _____' `find .`
Or if you have a specific directory in mind
perl -ne 'print if _____' `find mydirectory`

      it's more portable than you think; see perl power tools
