Mea culpa. But, in my defence, I think I used tar once or twice in
the second millennium, but never knowingly since. Normally I would
have had cpio on the end of that pipe, not tar.
But, to make a serious point, knowing how to use find is a
valuable skill as plenty of software doesn't have the options
that tar now has.
