"CARROTS ARE GOOD FOR YOU" - Ülkü SAYILAN - (2005-02-01 15:29:20) 
Most often when we try to execute a command at the shell we do
some mistakes like missing out a char or misspelling it.
Here is a easy way of correcting the mistake without having
to type the entire command again!.
In the below command "name" has been misspelled as "naem"
$ find . -naem "*.txt" -print
find: invalid predicate `-naem'
The above command would be valid if we replace "em" (in naem)
to "me"( to have name ). Use carrots to make this change
find . -name "*.txt" -print
This technique works well with bash and csh.
