The "find" in this case, has nothing to do with finding something within a file. But rather, is an attempt to find files themselves. :)
It is a search, that attempts to find all files within a certain range; in this case, over a certain age. Hence, all the chatter about ctime, atime, etc...
Hope this clears things up, a bit. :)
#!/usr/bin/perl -Tw use perl::always; my $perl_version = "5.12.4"; print $perl_version;
