filtering by file size

Hi !

I wanted to know how can i filter files by "size range".
like : getting all the files that are bigger than 100 byte and smaller than 200 byte ?

I want to make it as a script...

I noticed the unix command : find . -size +100c
but i also want limit it's upper bounds.
so something like :
find . -size +100c -200c
find . -size +100c && -200c

doesn't work...
What can i do ?

i also tried to use the "size" command on a file , but it doesn't return one value (the size in bytes).

pack(1) 						      General Commands Manual							   pack(1)

       pack, pcat, unpack - compress and expand files

       pack [ - ] [ -f ] name...

       pcat name...

       unpack name...

       The  command stores the specified files in a compressed form.  Wherever possible (and useful), each input file name is replaced by a packed
       file name.z with the same access modes, access and modified dates, and owner as those of name.  The  -f	option	forces	packing  of  name.
       Using  this option you can cause an entire directory to be packed even if some of the files cannot benefit from it.  If is successful, name
       is removed.  Packed files can be restored to their original form using or

       The command uses Huffman (minimum redundancy) codes on a byte-by-byte basis.  If a hyphen (-) is used as an argument, an internal  flag	is
       set that causes the number of times each byte is used, its relative frequency, and the code for the byte to be printed on the standard out-
       put.  Additional occurrences of a hyphen (-) in place of name causes the internal flag to be set and reset.

       The amount of compression obtained depends on the size of the input file and the character frequency distribution.  Because a decoding tree
       forms  the first part of each .z file, it is usually not worthwhile to pack files smaller than three blocks, unless the character frequency
       distribution is skewed, which may occur with printer plots or pictures.

       Typically, text files are reduced to 60-75% of their original size.  Load modules, which use a larger character set and have a more uniform
       distribution of characters, show little compression.  The packed versions are about 90% of the original size.

       The command returns a value that is the number of files that it failed to compress.

       No packing occurs if one of the following is true:

       o    The file appears packed.

       o    The file name exceeds 12 characters.

       o    The file has links.

       o    The file is a directory.

       o    The file cannot be opened.

       o    No disk storage blocks can be saved by packing.

       o    A file called already exists.

       o    The .z file cannot be created.

       o    An I/O error occurred during processing.

       The  last  segment of the file name must not exceed 12 characters to allow space for the appended .z extension.	Directories cannot be com-

       The command does for packed files what does for ordinary files, except that can not be used as a filter.  The specified files are  unpacked
       and written to the standard output.  Thus, to view a packed file named name.z use:
       pcat name.z
       or just:
       pcat name
       To make an unpacked copy, say nnn, of a packed file named (without destroying name.z) use the command:
       pcat name >nnn
       The command returns the number of files it was unable to unpack.  Failure may occur if:

	      the file name (exclusive of the .z) has more than 12 characters;
	      the file cannot be opened;
	      the file does not appear to be the output of pack.

       The  command expands files created by For each file name specified in the command, a search is made for a file called name.z (or just name,
       if name ends in .z).  If this file appears to be a packed file, it is replaced by its expanded version.	The new file  has  the	.z  suffix
       stripped from its name, and has the same access modes, access and modification dates, and owner as those of the packed file.

       The  command returns a value that is the number of files it was unable to unpack.  Failure occurs for the same reasons that it occurs in as
       well as for the following:

	      a file with the unpacked name already exists;
	      if the unpacked file cannot be created.

       This command is present only for compatibility.	In general, the command runs faster and gives better compression.
