Execute a command on the results of a search with the find command 1

`find \$LOCATION -name "\$FILENAME" -exec somecommand '{}' \;`

The above command will search in \$LOCATION for all files named \$FILENAME and apply the command that you define at somecommand.

The argument ‘{}’ inserts each file found into the somecommand syntax. The \; argument indicates the exec command line has ended — YOU MUST INCLUDE IT.
