Don't use a "*" in the search path. Unless you have a directory
"/path" your search won't find anything. You have to use "/home/path"
or, if you're already located in "/home", "path" by itself.

Same path problem.

> ARGON:/home/ # find /path/* -exec mysql -p password -h < {} \;
> -bash: {}: No such file or directory

"*" and path problem.

Cheers, Peter
