I have a directory
A with a large number of sub directories and files and want to get a list of all files named
foo that are inside of a directory in
A that matches
I have the some additional constraints:
- I must not descend into directories that don't match the
*bar(this is a necessary optimization as it would take to long to scan those)
- I can't allow the shell to do the glob expansion because it returns to many results: (i.e.
find *bar -type f -name foofails)
I think that the
-path flag would give me the results I need but I don't know if it fits the first of the above constraints.
Edit: Assume that there are n*10k directories in
A that match
*bar. i.e. anything that tries to build a command with all of them (as opposed to handling each one in tern) will fail.
