The GNU versions of find utilities (find and xargs).
The findutils package contains programs which will help you locate
files on your system. The find utility searches through a hierarchy
of directories looking for files which match a certain set of criteria
(such as a filename pattern). The xargs utility builds and executes
command lines from standard input arguments (usually lists of file
names generated by the find command).
You should install findutils because it includes tools that are very
useful for finding things on your system.
This package contains the GNU find, xargs, and locate programs. find
and xargs comply with POSIX 1003.2, as far as I know (with the
exception of the "+" modifier for the "-exec" action, which isn't
implemented yet). They also support a large number of additional
options, some borrowed from Unix and some unique to GNU.
See the file NEWS for a list of major changes in the current release.

message is given if you do this.
