Ok, I am in bash through Cygwin. I am in a directory which I KNOW contains a file called start.sh and yet when I try this: find . -name "start.sh" -print I get.... "FIND: Parameter format is not correct" Can anybody see what I might be doing wrong here? Surely this is the easiest find examples of all time??? Thanks in advance, Mark

I have no idea. With bash and zsh in cygwin,
find . -name "start.sh" -print

works, with find using /usr/bin/find.

Found it!

I wasn't logged in so my path/bin wasn't loaded so I was accidentally executing the DOS find.

Slaps forehead, hard.
