Quiz: portability of “find” commandby Wojciech Adam Koszek ⋅ Nov 29, 2015 ⋅ Menlo Park, CA
Another portability issue when moving around the operating systems. How often do you use `find`? Exactly. Interesting for UNIX and macOS people.
wk:/w/repos/dockerfiles&> find wkoszek -type d -depth 1 wkoszek/base wkoszek/nginx
On Linux you get:
find: warning: you have specified the -depth option after a non-option argument -type, but options are not positional (-depth affects tests specified before it as well as those specified after it). Please specify options before other arguments.
Hint: compare manual pages of both commands.
Quiz: do you know offhand what’s the correct fix?
