I'm trying to merge my CSS files the following way:

find /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/css/ -type f -name "*.css" -exec cat {} + > ./temporary/css_backend_merged.css

That works great, but I want to include only files that begin with a certain prefix e.g. "include_". Does anyone know how to tweak the find command to do that?

Thanks a lot!

-name "include_*.css" should do the trick. –  Mikael S Dec 26 '09 at 15:38

Just add the prefix in the -name argument.

find /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/css/ -type f -name "include_*.css" -exec cat {} + > /temporary/css_backend_merged.css
