The third sentence of the description of the -P option in the man page
for 'find' starts:

"When find examines or prints information a file..."

But I think it should be:

"When find examines or prints information about a file..."

This error is present in the version of the man page at
http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man1/find.1.html

Hello Matthew,

Bugs in the find(1) manual page need to be reported to the location shown in:

http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man1/find.1.html#COLOPHON

Thanks,

Michael
