Replicate find

This exercise is very similar to the ls exercise, but instead of simply listing based on a pattern you are taking various commands to more finely control the search. This will help you solidify your understanding of the fs module which will be essential for future exercises.

Notes on Commander.js

The find command is an odd one because it uses the non-standard -name style (one dash, one word) while the rest of Unix tools use --name style (two dash, one word) or -n (one dash, one letter) style. For now, if you want to keep using commander.js then you'll have to use the --name style and just go with it for now.
