Need find package that supports printf on AIX

My current find command does not support printf.

I need find package that supports printf on AiX 6.1 system.

Can anyone help me with the download link or where / how / if I can find it ?

Can it be installed at a different non default location so that it can be reference without disturbing the current default find utility?

The GNU find utility is available from AIX Toolbox for Linux Applications.

These tools are additional to the standard AIX tools of the same name, so your script will have to change the PATH variable or use a full path name to the GNU tools to utilize them.

Well, it says "AIX 6.1" right in the file name, Mr. Mohtashims Smilie

What else do you want? LOL

This has dependency on coreutils.

I am writing on getting that onboarded.

... and as always that should be done, and you should stage this on a development platform and confirm how to do the install, document the install details, and test results, and have it reviewed before you move this to a production environment.

Confirming (testing) how it works on AIX6.1 is your responsibility in your own development and test environment, not ours, obviously.
