Judging by your (second) post, I get the feeling that the answers
given in this list haven't reached you (at whatever level). Most
of them were quite positive: "yes, such a tool exists, it's called
'find'", some of them even implemented a sketch of a solution to
your concrete example.

Since you don't even try to make reference to *any* of the numerous
proposals flung around here, I'm at a loss on how to help you.

For now, I'll just give up, sorry.
