http://www.unix.com – Hello Unix Gurus, I am new to Unix so need some help on this. I am using the following commands: 1) mv -f Inputpath/*.[Pp][Dd][Ff] outputpath 2) cp Inputpath/*.[Pp][Dd][Ff] outputpath 3) rm -rf somepath/* 4) Find Inputpath/*.[Pp][Dd][Ff] Now I get the following error with the Find command above : Code: /bin/ksh: /usr/bin/find: 0403-027 The parameter list is too long This is happening because there are large number of files which the Find command has to process. I am also thinking i may get the same type of error with other un (HowTos)
