I am looking for a simple script to do some cleanup on directories older than n days.  As part of that script, I need to do a find on directories within my pwd.  However, I only want the top level directories returned, not subdirectories.

For instance, give the following:
ls
/mydir
/mydir/myotherdir/mythirddir
/yourdir
/yourdir/yourotherdir/yourthirddir
file.txt
file.sh

I only want my find command to return mydir and yourdir

Again, this is on solaris, so I don't have maxdepth.
