Yeah, I'm making a similar assumption.  It would help if the email
actually contained the two pieces of code in question, because I can't
be bothered to go read some external web site to see what the question

Even better would be a simple statement of the desired goal, without
any code, because chances are all of the code that's been written is

Let's assume that we've got a function "func" defined in bash, and
that it only takes a single filename as an argument.  Let's also assume
that we want to call it once for every file in a directory tree,

The two recommended ways to do that are:

# (1)
export -f func
find . -type f -exec bash -c 'for f; do func "$f"; done' x {} +

# (2)
while IFS= read -r -d '' f; do
  func "$f"
done < <(find . -type f -print0)

The second one requires GNU or BSD find.
