I think you might need to use single quotes around the argument to -name lest it get expanded by the shell before it gets passed to find

    well, find . -name "*.jpg" will work just fine, so the double-quotes are ok... it's just the curly braces that are being loopy

    I just checked and AIX doesn't support {}, but Linux is supposed to (at least a cursory glance at a website said it did), although, I'm sure that varies based upon build.

[Eily]: :)
[Eily]: or I might be tempted to send him an Acme::EyeDropsed file next time
[Eily]: Acme::Bleach is tempting, but it will look like I'm just using the one module that does precisely exactly what he wants
