Hi, i'm trying to come up with a find command that will find all executables on the system and sort them by group and then by user

Here is what I have come up with:

find / -perm -0111  ! -type d -ls ! -print

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi thewing,

   Try the following command:

    find . -perm a=rwx,g-w,o-w -type f -ls | sort -k 6

    This will sort it by group, and you can change whatever the permission you want.
