Thank you for clearing things out.  Will check and report results by
next week.

Have a nice weekend!

> contains spaces, and spaces in pathnames are far more common on
> Windows than on Unix.
> 2. Incompatible programs in the path. E.g. if the System32 directory
> is at the beginning of $PATH, "find" will refer to the Windows utility
> of that name. Ditto for "sort".
