findrule - command line wrapper to File::Find::Rule
findrule [path...] [expression]
"findrule" mostly borrows the interface from GNU find(1) to provide a
command-line interface onto the File::Find::Rule heirarchy of modules.
The syntax for expressions is the rule name, preceded by a dash,
followed by an optional argument. If the argument is an opening
parenthesis it is taken as a list of arguments, terminated by a closing
find -file -name ( foo bar )
files named "foo" or "bar", below the current directory.
find -file -name foo -bar
files named "foo", that have pubs (for this is what our ficticious
"bar" clause specifies), below the current directory.
find -file -name ( -bar )
files named "-bar", below the current directory. In this case if we'd
have omitted the parenthesis it would have parsed as a call to name
with no arguments, followed by a call to -bar.
I'm very slack. Please consult the File::Find::Rule manpage for now,
and prepend - to the commands that you want.
Extra bonus switches
findrule automatically loads all of your installed File::Find::Rule::*
extension modules, so check the documentation to see what those would
