WThirtyTwoFindDiredWithUnixUtils

Tried this with gnu emacs on winXP.

Problem: You get something like

    w:/thomas/fixHtml/:
    find . -exec ls -ld {} \;
    find: missing argument to `-exec'

find exited abnormally with code 1

Solution:

Find-dired now doesn’t produce that error message.

With Msys find and customize

A different approach is to customize ‘find-ls-option’. Change `Find Option’ from

    -exec ls -ld {} \;

to

    -exec ls -ld {} ;

Due to the way Msys is installed its find comes first in the PATH and Emacs automatically uses the right one.
