How Do I Find Find?

Hello Drew,

As an alternative may I suggest using locate? You update the database by 
issuing /usr/libexec/locate.updatedb from shell.

Then just locate what you want.

Good luck!

Well, the latter is built out, but when I went back to the former, it said there was a problem with my last shutdown (which I don't remember) and went into single user mode. I went to run a "find" and it complained it couldn't find the "find" command! I thought, what the heck, no great loss, I'll just rebuild this machine. But after re-installing FBSD, it *still* can't find the "find" command! Now I'm worried!  It wasn't in /usr/bin/ What happened to this installation??
