Subject: find2perl -eval documentation error (with patch)

This is a bug report for perl from dcd@tc.fluke.com,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.27 running under perl v5.5.660.

from the find2perl man page

       `-eval EXPR ;'
           Has the perl script eval() the EXPR.  The `;' must be
           passed as a distinct argument, so it may need to be
           surrounded by whitespace and/or quoted from interpre<AD>
           tation by the shell using a backslash (just as with
           using `find(1)').

$ find2perl . -depth -eval print \;
Unrecognized switch: ;

The -exec code process args while (@ARGV && $ARGV[0] ne ';')
the -eval is just expecting one $prog to be shifted
from the args and does not expect a ';'


Here's a patch to remove the incorrect documentation
