Find anything and open it with one command
Authored by: oink on Apr 14, '05 11:09:37PM

Thank you for trying, but that doesn't solve the problem. That command will move the found files to the parent of the current working directory (./) not the parents of the found files. Example move /dir1/dir2/dir3/file to /dir1/dir2/file

THANK YOU. I learned about execdir from the man page, but it didn't work for me as expected, your example works perfectly. Gotta remember that.
