You can use the -user option of find with the -exec command, check the manpage of find.

Hello,

I have a problem, I need to find files in folder by owner, not using find command at all and ls -R parameter. Thanx a lot.

Can you use an ls -l to get a listing of files, then an awk command to only select on the appropprate column?

Why the restrictions on certain approaches?

I have a task to write a shell script that finds files in folders by selected owner, without using find command at all and ls -R parameter. I can use ls -l command but I can't use sed,awk,perl as well.

Hammer & Screwdriver What about the following command?

Code:
> ls -l | tr -s " " | grep "^-" | cut -d" " -f3,9- | grep "^pipe" | cut -d" " -f2-

where the word pipe is the file owner.
