       findrule - command line wrapper to File::Find::Rule

         findrule [path...] [expression]

       "findrule" mostly borrows the interface from GNU find(1) to provide a
       command-line interface onto the File::Find::Rule heirarchy 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.

       Some examples:

        find -file -name ( foo bar )

       files named "foo" or "bar", below the current directory.

        find -file -name foo -bar

       files named "foo", that have pubs (for this is what our ficticious "bar"
       clause specifies), below the current directory.

        find -file -name ( -bar )

       files named "-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.

   Supported switches
       I'm very slack.  Please consult the File::Find::Rule manpage for now, and
       prepend - to the commands that you want.

   Extra bonus switches
       findrule automatically loads all of your installed File::Find::Rule::*
       extension modules, so check the documentation to see what those would be.
