The "Using -printf and sort to compare timestamps" example has this example code:

    newest=$(find subdir -newer timestamp -printf "%A%p\n" |
               sort -n |
               tail -n1 |
               cut -d: -f2- )
    touch -r "${newest:-timestamp}" timestamp

which is missing an "@" character after the "%A".

Definitely missing in version 4.8.0 which I've got installed. Also missing at https://www.gnu.org/software/findutils/manual/html_node/find_html/Updating-A-Timestamp-File.html#Using-_002dprintf-and-sort-to-compare-timestamps, so I assume it's not fixed in the most recent release.
