Everybody who hates File::Find should try the find2perl utility that comes bundled with perl.
find2perl > my-find-script-template.pl
chmod u+x my-find-script-template.pl
It's totally boneheaded utility. As far as I can tell, all it does is output the template for a basic file finder with perl, which you can then modify per your requirements.
Well, actually, it's a little more powerful than that, but I never figured out how to give arguments to this script. I just output and tweak.
And yet... and yet... what a help that is!
Try it if you haven't. :)
