Hi all,

In a certain code, some folders are been copied from the source to the destination by the following soft link command i.e ln -s xxxxxxx source destination...

Now since i want to know the names of all the files in that folder , and i use the command "find . type -f". This command goes fine if the simple copy command is used to copy from source to destination i.e if there is fixed source ,,, but ithis command is not working for the soft link and so when i run this command on this soft link copied folder, nothing is displayed. Can someone explain me the link between " Copying by soft link and type -f " command.

Thanks
Ridham
