maxdepth in avaible for AIX?


I'm trying to do a search in a directory on AIX and I was wondering if there's an equivelant option to the -maxdepth option to tell how far down to search.

I ran this but I just want to make sure it's actually searching everything:

find ./* -type f -name "090817*" -exec ls -l {} \;

You have a couple of options, though neither is as nice as maxdepth:

-xdev Prevents the find command from traversing a file system different from the one specified by the Path parameter.

-prune Stops the descent of the current path name if it is a directory.
