Here is the idea I am going for:
I want to run the command
find / -name target.file -print
and parse ONLY the path not the path with the file name appended.
I know there must be a simple way of doing this, but it has me stumped at
I am using ksh on SCO UNIX. The issue here is portability., All systems are
SCO but the output of the find can vary greatly (Directory depth various on
the systems I work on) If I could assign this find command to a varible and
loop it to take a prescribed action with in the directory of the targetted
file, It would be the last peice to a HUGE puzzle I have been struggling
with for quiet some time!
