Hey Harald. I'm not sure how much it would increase the size of BB, but
I wouldn't think much since the 'ls' command already processes regex's.
Something like this in bash/perl would take a few lines at best -
although I'm not a C or C++ programmer, so I couldn't say for sure
there. I don't use find because it adds another dependency to the
script (something I try to keep a minimum of). Thanks for the thought
though. :) Inclusion of '--hide' isn't a deal breaker as I'm currently
working around by piping through grep (it's already a dependency and
gets used frequently), I just thought it would be a nice addition to
make for more complex searches without relying on another binary. :)
