Leaving aside the -exec option, and whether you choose classic find or 
mmfind,

why not just use the -ls option - same output, less overhead...

mmfind pathname -type f -ls

Stupid me. The space between the {}  and \; is significant.
/usr/local/bin/mmfind /hpc/bscratch -type f -exec /bin/ls {} \;
 
Still would be nice to have the documentation clarified please.

Looking at the mmfind.README it indicates that it only supports the format 
you used with the semi-colon.  Did you capture any output of the problem?

I would dearly like to use mmfind in a project I am working on  (version 
4.2.3.4 at the moment)
 
mmfind /hpc/bscratch  -type f                  work fine
 
mmfind /hpc/bscratch  -type f -exec /bin/ls {}\ ;      crashes and burns
 
I know there are supposed to be problems with exec and mmfind, and this is 
sample software shipped without warranty etc.
But why let me waste hours on this when it won’t work?
There is even an example in the README for mmfind 
 
./mmfind /encFS -type f -exec /bin/readMyFile {} \;
But in the help for mmfind:
-exec COMMANDs are terminated by a standalone ';' or by the string '{} +’
 
So which is it? The normal find version {} \;    or         {} +
