Question: How can i recursivly search and action on eash file found within a folder structure, and only see the file name?

This is quite a good for/do loop for recursively checking the directory set by $SEARCHDIR and returning only the file name (no path information) for the found files.

for file in $( find $SEARCHDIR -type f -exec basename {} 😉

<enter bash commands here eg. echo $file )
