[vox-tech] Error Message From "find"



Hi All,

Sometimes "find" will work; other times not.
Below is a script where "find" runs good, I cd to a
subordinate dir, run the same find command, and get an
error message.  This is repeatable on my Red Hat 7.2
system.

If I were using relative addressing, then sure, it
should be a problem.  But I'm not, am I?

The output is just as script produces, except I have
added several blank lines for readability.

Thanks,
Jim
