Find all the configuration scripts on a system
With this handy perl oneliner

In case you don't speak Perl, the split command chops up the PATH variable, the chdir then switches directory to each element of PATH in turn. @a is a list variable and it gets set to the values of the shell globs *setup and *config. Finally, the @a list is printed in double quotes to interpolate it to a space separated string.
