useless79, please do try out those find statements and see the difference. You can also refer to the man pages to see what those flags stand for.

Just adding the Vino's point Smilie

-print flag is by default with find utility to the display of output in Standard Output (Monitor).

So there is no difference if you will give or not with Find command.

Thanks
