findorule mostly borrows the interface from GNU find(1) to provide a command-line interface onto the File::Find::Object::Rule hierarchy of modules.
The syntax for expressions is the rule name, preceded by a dash, followed by an optional argument. If the argument is an opening parenthesis it is taken as a list of arguments, terminated by a closing parenthesis.
find -file -name ( foo bar )
bar, below the current directory.
find -file -name foo -bar
foo, that have pubs (for this is what our fictitious
bar clause specifies), below the current directory.
find -file -name ( -bar )
-bar, below the current directory. In this case if we'd have omitted the parenthesis it would have parsed as a call to name with no arguments, followed by a call to -bar.
I'm very slack. Please consult the File::Find::Object::Rule manpage for now, and prepend - to the commands that you want.
Extra bonus switches
findorule automatically loads all of your installed File::Find::Object::Rule::* extension modules, so check the documentation to see what those would be.
