118Text correction: Error in code under "Generating Command Lines"
The first line of code on the page,
$ find ./ -name "*~" | xargs rm
could delete more files than intended. The line should read:

$ find ./ -name "*~" | xargs -d "\n" rm

In addition, append this text to the following paragraph:

"Problems can arise if filenames contain spaces, since by default xargs uses both spaces and newlines as item delimiters. The -d "\n" option to xargs tells it to use only newlines as delimiters, thus avoiding this problem in this context. (The find command separates each found filename with a newline.)"
