Using Find with Shell on Mac

I'm pretty much fed up with Spotlight.
On Linux apps I use Locate, which is really efficient.
but setting up and keep the locate dbase on mac is also frought with issues. it will not index $Home
which is weird.
FIND is slower of course, but perfectly effective.
find ~/ -iname *.livecode
from terminal get me *every* with .livecode in my user folder. in my UI's for locate I just get all the results into a var, then filter that var with strings and update the results field… works great, very fast.
But this, inside the msg box:
put "find ~/ -iname *.livecode" into tShell
is only returning a single line:
/Users/Brahmanathaswami//OneDrive/_RevData/Books in Rev/HAP_Trilogy Reader Source/source/HAP_Trilogy-Reader1-1.livecode
Why don't we get all the results we do in terminal?
