So much the more reasons to use
mmfind ... -xargs ...
Which, for large number of files, gives you a very much more performant
and parallelized execution of the classic
find ... | xargs ...
The difference is exec is run in line with the evaluation of the other
find conditionals (like -type f) but spawns a new command shell for each
evaluation of exec...
Whereas -xargs is run after the pathnames of all of the (matching) files
are discovered ...
Like classic xargs, if your command can take a list of files, you save
BUT -xargs also runs multiple instances of your command in multiple
parallel processes on multiple nodes.
