Sorry for keeping at it, but one more thing: "the delimited" should probably be "the delimiter".

Yes, but this is now fixed.  Thanks again.

You missed the ones where "Illegal" is misspelled as "Ilegal".  :)

You're quite correct; thanks for picking this up. 

I have now corrected all the instances of this problem in the findutils code and documentation exccept the following files:

./ChangeLog (because it is people's actual comments)

./gnulib/lib/getopt.c (because this code is maintained by the gnulib project - email <bug-gnulb@gnu.org>)

./po/findutils.pot (because this is just a copy of the message from the getopt.c file).

Thanks for picking up this problem!

Please change all occurrences of "Ilegal escape sequence" to "Invalid escape sequence", as those sequences are not really against the law.  The same for "Illegal input delimiter".
