       File::Find::Rule::Procedural - File::Find::Rule's procedural interface


         use File::Find::Rule;

         # find all .pm files, procedurally
         my @files = find(file => name => '*.pm', in => \@INC);


       In addition to the regular object-oriented interface, File::Find::Rule provides two
       subroutines for you to use.

       "find( @clauses )"
       "rule( @clauses )"
           "find" and "rule" can be used to invoke any methods available to the OO version.
           "rule" is a synonym for "find"

       Passing more than one value to a clause is done with an anonymous array:

        my $finder = find( name => [ '*.mp3', '*.ogg' ] );

       "find" and "rule" both return a File::Find::Rule instance, unless one of the arguments is
       "in", in which case it returns a list of things that match the rule.

        my @files = find( name => [ '*.mp3', '*.ogg' ], in => $ENV{HOME} );

       Please note that "in" will be the last clause evaluated, and so this code will search for
       mp3s regardless of size.

        my @files = find( name => '*.mp3', in => $ENV{HOME}, size => '<2k' );
                      Clause processing stopped here ------/

       It is also possible to invert a single rule by prefixing it with "!"  like so:

        # large files that aren't videos
        my @files = find( file    =>
                          '!name' => [ '*.avi', '*.mov' ],
                          size    => '>20M',
                          in      => $ENV{HOME} );
