I use the find-command for searching in large and nested directory-structures.
In the result-output is sometimes a double-slash ( // ) included.
Example (after "Downloads"):
#> find ~/Downloads/ -iregex ".*some.*" /Users/michael/Downloads//subDirectory/some_file.pdf
I first thought it would mark the current working-directory. But that isn't the case.
What's the meaning of this double-slash?
Usually I copy the result into the clipboard, change to the finder. Then "shift" + "command" + "g" and pasting the path (until the file) into the box. So that the containing directory is opened.
Works fine. But the double-slash I have to remove manually.
Therefore: How can I avoid it?
