The default charset used for files is utf-8. The convmv program can help you convert filenames from one encoding to another. If you have filenames that are using ISO-8859-1 (Latin-1), for example, you might be able to make find happy using something like this: LANG=en_US.iso88591 find ... But fixing the encodings of the filenames seems like a far better solution. -- Todd OpenPGP -> KeyID: 0xBEAF0CE3 | URL: www.pobox.com/~tmz/pgp ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ But I have grown older, and you have grown colder.
