How can I upgrade the "find" command to the latest version?
I got this answer for Is it possible to chain two consecutive find commands? last year.
Today I wanted to test the latest recommendation to pipe two
find commands together.
find ... -print0 | find -files0-from - ...
To my surprise it did not work and I got this error:
find: unknown predicate `-files0-from’
I checked the
file version using
file --version and it was
find (GNU findutils) 4.8.0
This confuses me, as I use the Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS and run
apt update && apt upgrade every day.
So, how can I update my
find command to the latest version?
You can install findutils from Ubuntu 23.04 in Ubuntu 22.04 using these commands:
wget -c http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/main/f/findutils/findutils_4.9.0-3ubuntu1_amd64.deb sudo apt install ./findutils_4.9.0-3ubuntu1_amd64.deb
