It is entirely non-Cygwin-specific, yes.
If I do a (cygwin) find for some fragment of a filename, I get a whole
pile of hits in the /proc/registry area - none of which is
relevant. I would wish to tell find not to get involved with the
/proc filesystem at all.
Can that easily be done?
% find / -path '/proc' -prune -o -print
To paraphrase, "find starting in slash pruning away any path names that
begin with "/proc" and print all others."
