NAME
       findrule - command line wrapper to File::Find::Rule

USAGE
	 findrule [path...] [expression]

DESCRIPTION
       "findrule" mostly borrows the interface from GNU find(1) to provide a command-line
       interface onto the File::Find::Rule heirarchy of modules.

       The syntax for expressions is the rule name, preceded by a dash, followed by an optional
       argument.  If the argument is an opening parenthesis it is taken as a list of arguments,
       terminated by a closing parenthesis.

       Some examples:

	find -file -name ( foo bar )

       files named "foo" or "bar", below the current directory.

	find -file -name foo -bar

       files named "foo", that have pubs (for this is what our ficticious "bar" clause
       specifies), below the current directory.

	find -file -name ( -bar )

       files named "-bar", below the current directory.  In this case if we'd have omitted the
       parenthesis it would have parsed as a call to name with no arguments, followed by a call
       to -bar.

   Supported switches
       I'm very slack.	Please consult the File::Find::Rule manpage for now, and prepend - to the
       commands that you want.

   Extra bonus switches
       findrule automatically loads all of your installed File::Find::Rule::* extension modules,
       so check the documentation to see what those would be.
