A list of the various command line 'util' programs
Authored by: jwbales on Jul 20, '05 01:55:33PM

How about using the trusty find command (all on one line)?

$ sudo find -f /usr/*bin /*bin /System/Library/CoreServices /System/Library/Frameworks -type f \( -name \*util -o -name \*setup\* -o -name \*set \) -print

Doh! Pasting the command dropped some backslashes!

$ sudo find -f /usr/*bin /*bin /System/Library/CoreServices /System/Library/Frameworks -type f \( -name *util -o -name *setup* -o -name *set \) -print

Double Doh! fsck'n GUI stuff. :-)
You need to have backslashes before the ( AND ) in case this revision to my revision still doesn't work.

$ sudo find -f /usr/*bin /*bin /System/Library/CoreServices /System/Library/Frameworks -type f \( -name *util -o -name *setup* -o -name *set \) -print

@!$#^!% -- If only I'd read! It plainly says "Yes, those are square brackets".
