Something like this?


echo "Enter the filename to seek:"
read INPUT
VAR=`find / -type f -name "${INPUT}" -print`
# now do something with it maybe

exit 0

treereg - Compiler for Tree Regular Expressions SYNOPSIS
treereg [-m packagename] [[no]syntax] [[no]numbers] [-severity 0|1|2|3] [-p treeprefix] [-o outputfile] [-lib /path/to/library/] -i filename[.trg] treereg [-m packagename] [[no]syntax] [[no]numbers] [-severity 0|1|2|3] [-p treeprefix] [-lib /path/to/library/] [-o outputfile] filename[.trg] treereg -v treereg -h OPTIONS
Options can be used both with one dash and double dash. It is not necessary to write the full name of the option. A disambiguation prefix suffices. o "-i[n] filename" Input file. Extension ".trg" is assumed if no extension is provided. o "-o[ut] filename" Output file. By default is the name of the input file (concatenated with .pm) o "-m[od] packagename" Name of the package containing the generated subroutines. By default is the longest prefix of the input file name that conforms to the classic definition of integer "[a-z_A-Z]w*". o "-l[ib] /path/to/library/" Specifies that "/path/to/library/" will be included in @INC. Useful when the "syntax" option is on. Can be inserted as many times as necessary. o "-p[refix] treeprefix" Tree nodes automatically generated using "Parse::Eyapp" are objects blessed into the name of the production. To avoid crashes the programmer may prefix the class names with a given prefix when calling the parser; for example: $self->YYParse( yylex => &_Lexer, yyerror => &_Error, yyprefix => __PACKAGE__."::") The "-prefix treeprefix" option simplifies the process of writing the tree grammar so that instead of writing with the full names CLASS::TIMES(CLASS::NUM, $x) and { $NUM->{VAL} == 0) => { $NUM } it can be written: TIMES(NUM, $x) and { $NUM->{VAL} == 0) => { $NUM } o "-n[umbers]" Produces "#line" directives. o "-non[umbers]" Disable source file line numbering embedded in your parser o "-sy[ntax]" Checks that Perl code is syntactically correct. o "-nosy[ntax]" Does not check the syntax of Perl code o "-se[verity] number" - 0 = Don't check arity (default). Matching does not check the arity. The actual node being visited may have more children. - 1 = Check arity. Matching requires the equality of the number of children and the actual node and the pattern. - 2 = Check arity and give a warning - 3 = Check arity, give a warning and exit o "-v[ersion]" Gives the version o "-u[sage]" Prints the usage info o "-h[elp]" Print this help DESCRIPTION
"Treereg" translates a tree grammar specification file (default extension ".trg" describing a set of tree patterns and the actions to modify them using tree-terms like: TIMES(NUM, $x) and { $NUM->{VAL} == 0) => { $NUM } which says that wherever an abstract syntax tree representing the product of a numeric expression with value 0 times any other kind of expression, the "TIMES" tree can be substituted by its left child. The compiler produces a Perl module containing the subroutines implementing those sets of pattern-actions. EXAMPLE
Consider the following "eyapp" grammar (see the "Parse::Eyapp" documentation to know more about "Parse::Eyapp" grammars): ---------------------------------------------------------- nereida:~/LEyapp/examples> cat Rule6.yp %{ use Data::Dumper; %} %right '=' %left '-' '+' %left '*' '/' %left NEG %tree %% line: exp { $_[1] } ; exp: %name NUM NUM | %name VAR VAR | %name ASSIGN VAR '=' exp | %name PLUS exp '+' exp | %name MINUS exp '-' exp | %name TIMES exp '*' exp | %name DIV exp '/' exp | %name UMINUS '-' exp %prec NEG | '(' exp ')' { $_[2] } /* Let us simplify a bit the tree */ ; %% sub _Error { die "Syntax error.
