Help nit (FFIND and DIR with /S)

May 20, 2008
Syracuse, NY, USA
For both DIR and FFIND, the help for "/S" mentions only "the current directory and all of its subdirectories". But there's a very useful (and old) behavior wherein if file contains a path then that path is used as the root for recursion. For example,
v:\> dir /s /f g:\tc21\4u*

v:\> ffind /s /a:d /h g:\tc21\*

Is there a way one might discover that behavior? I looked (only a little) and didn't find one.
