How do you tell find to exclude a list of files or a pattern. For example, I 
want to list files under foo/ but exclude all files in directories and 
subdirectories called .bar and execute a command on each file


Currnently, I use

for i in `find ./ -type f | grep -v ".bar"`; do MyCommand.sh $i; done

But there should be a way I can do

find ./ -type f XXXXX -exec MyCommand.sh \{\} \;

Where XXXXX would be the exclude option.
