File is of type c:
b block (buffered) special
c character (unbuffered) special
p named pipe (FIFO)
f regular file
l symbolic link; this is never true if the -L option or the -follow option is in effect,
unless the symbolic link is broken. If you want to search for symbolic links when -L is in
effect, use -xtype.
D door (Solaris)
Base of file name (the path with the leading directories removed) matches shell pattern pattern.
The metacharacters (`*', `?', and `') match a `.' at the start of the base name (this is a
change in findutils-4.2.2; see section STANDARDS CONFORMANCE below). To ignore a directory and
the files under it, use -prune; see an example in the description of -path. Braces are not
recognised as being special, despite the fact that some shells including Bash imbue braces with a
special meaning in shell patterns. The filename matching is performed with the use of the
fnmatch(3) library function. Don't forget to enclose the pattern in quotes in order to protect
it from expansion by the shell.
Before a command is executed, its input and output may be redirected using a special notation interpreted
by the shell. Redirection may also be used to open and close files for the current shell execution
environment. The following redirection operators may precede or appear anywhere within a simple command
or may follow a command. Redirections are processed in the order they appear, from left to right.
Redirection of output causes the file whose name results from the expansion of word to be opened for
writing on file descriptor n, or the standard output (file descriptor 1) if n is not specified. If the
file does not exist it is created; if it does exist it is truncated to zero size.
The general format for redirecting output is:
If the redirection operator is >, and the noclobber option to the set builtin has been enabled, the
redirection will fail if the file whose name results from the expansion of word exists and is a regular
file. If the redirection operator is >|, or the redirection operator is > and the noclobber option to
the set builtin command is not enabled, the redirection is attempted even if the file named by word
