[Touch-packages] [Bug 1786625] Re: "find" command throws nonsense error message

2018-10-21 Thread Andreas Metzler
Hello, If you run "find . -name *.txt" in a directory containing foo.txt and bar.txt then the shell expands *.txt before executing find, i.e. you would be running "find . -name foo.txt bar.txt" which produces a syntax error. Either quote ('*.txt') or escape (\*.txt) the argument. Closing. **

It's funny that when creating the bug report there was a choice for the package to report against: - linux - I don't know. I chose "I don't know", but it has been assigned to linux allthesame. Brilliant. ** Also affects: findutils (Ubuntu) Importance: Undecided Status: New ** No
