Thanks for the clean, well formatted, easy to read request!

Here's a fragment with gnu awk, which may help you....

My directory structure:

cd $basedir
tree -n
├── 1.Amber
│   ├── seed-1.txt
│   ├── seed-2.txt
│   └── seed-3.txt
├── 2.Chris
│   ├── seed-1.ppt
│   └── seed-2.ppt
└── 3.Dragon
    ├── seed-1.tgz
    ├── seed-2.tgz
    └── seed-3.tgz

Code that gets you the directory and the filename into variables:

while read directory file ; do
   echo "$directory" "$file"
done < <(find | gawk 'match($0,/\/([^\/]+)\/(seed-.*)/,matches){print matches[1],matches[2]}')

# output

2.Chris seed-2.ppt
2.Chris seed-1.ppt
1.Amber seed-2.txt
1.Amber seed-3.txt
1.Amber seed-1.txt
3.Dragon seed-1.tgz
3.Dragon seed-3.tgz
3.Dragon seed-2.tgz

otp(n)							RFC 2289 A One-Time Password System						    otp(n)


otp - One-Time Passwords SYNOPSIS
package require Tcl 8.2 package require otp ?1.0.0? ::otp::otp-md4 ?-hex? ?-words? -seed seed -count count data ::otp::otp-md5 ?-hex? ?-words? -seed seed -count count data ::otp::otp-sha1 ?-hex? ?-words? -seed seed -count count data ::otp::otp-rmd160 ?-hex? ?-words? -seed seed -count count data _________________________________________________________________ DESCRIPTION
This package is an implementation in Tcl of the One-Time Password system as described in RFC 2289 (1). This system uses message-digest algorithms to sequentially hash a passphrase to create single-use passwords. The resulting data is then provided to the user as either hexadecimal digits or encoded using a dictionary of 2048 words. This system is used by OpenBSD for secure login and can be used as a SASL mechanism for authenticating users. In this implementation we provide support for four algorithms that are included in the tcllib distribution: MD5 (2), MD4 (3), RIPE-MD160 (4) and SHA-1 (5). COMMANDS
::otp::otp-md4 ?-hex? ?-words? -seed seed -count count data ::otp::otp-md5 ?-hex? ?-words? -seed seed -count count data ::otp::otp-sha1 ?-hex? ?-words? -seed seed -count count data ::otp::otp-rmd160 ?-hex? ?-words? -seed seed -count count data EXAMPLES
