Right -- that's nice. It would get rid of the "chomp $dir;", and ... um ... AH! It took me a while to get your point: Sometimes, one or more characters within a file name happens to be "\n"! (When this happens it's truly evil, but I know it does happen.) Thanks!

update: For some reason, the "/usr/bin/find" that comes with solaris 8 does not support the "-print0" flag -- need the GNU version to do that. Oh well.

    Exactly... but you still shouldn't get rid of the chomp... the chomp will just take off the "\0" (chomp removes a trailing $/, even if $/ is set to something other than "\n").
