You're right on that one... this is supposed to be supported, but I can't get it to work on AIX:
find . -name "*.jp{,e}g"

    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.
