All I can say is crap, and crap.

I wanted to exclude certain files to go onto a http server, one that does not support any languages other than shoving html back out.  So, if a link to say, file.php was hit, there is a chance the raw source would be served.  They only wanted images and .htm and .html.

Yes, there probably is a password or two in these files.

I used ^foo and was relying on my idea of find being case-i.

Thanks for pointing this out, now I have to go and hope they did not put the files up yet, and correct this. Then again, I was asked to do this, and just thought it safer, so if it blows up, I guess I could correct it then, gonna try and correct it ahead of time for them though.

Thanks again for pointing this out.
