Nah, use the "| while read; do <operation> $REPLY; done" that Brian
Foster was using. Less prone to breakage when the files contain
whitespace in their names; of course, it still breaks when you put a
newline in a filename, but c'est la vie. It's not portable to csh
based shells (or rather, there's a different syntax there), if that is
-- I'm not a pheasant plucker / I'm a pheasant plucker's son. I'm just a'plucking pheasants / 'Til the pheasant plucker comes.
