[CentOS] stupid bash question

Craig White <craig.white at ttiltd.com>

the relevant snippet is...

cd $IN
if test -n "$(find . -maxdepth 1 -name $NAME -print -quit)"

and if there is one file in this directory - ie test.mov, this works fine

but if there are two (or more) files in this directory - test.mov, test2.mov

then I get an error...
find: paths must precede expression

So my code is evidently wrong. I just want a test for 1 or more files ending in .mov in the directory?

Any one want to toss me a bone here?
