An exec for every single item found is quite expensive (don't
know about today's timing, but I would estimate some 10 msec for
creating a new process -- the perl compiler run adds to this,

Get yourself trained to use the xargs(1) command.  It will
balance between too many program invocations and too long command
lines (" `find ...`" doesn't work for some 4K arguments on
the platforms I've seen.).

find . -type f -print0 | xargs -0
