  • Ah yes, *lightbulb*. I can steal the GNU convention of putting where first, rather than last, giving us:

    % findrule -file -name red blue
    # find files called red or blue, below the current directory

    % findrule blue -file -name red
    # find files called red, below the directory blue

    Though I think it still leaves the ambiguity about finding things named -*, maybe we could use '[' ']' to disambiguate that (of course then we can't find things called '[' or ']'

    % findrule -file -name [ -red ]
    # find files called -red, below the current directory
