Find directories that have two subdirectories in them-- PLEASE help


I have a directory architecture as follows

Code:
/top/$code1/$code2/grids/
/top/$code1/$code2/calibrate
there are mutliple different $code1 directories, and mutliple $code2 directories inside the code1 dirs. I am trying to find all the instances where the /top/$code1/$code2 directory contains the subdirectories <calibrate> and <grids>. if the $code2 directory has both, I want to run a command. right now i have a bunch of non-working code, which is as follows
Code:
find . \( -name "grids" -o -name "calibrate" \) -type d | sed 's#\(.*\)/.*#\1#' | sort -u
#maybe print only directories with files???
find . -name "calibrate" -prune -name "grids" -type d -print > outf3
#no work
find . grids -type d | find . calibrate -type d | grep -ev 'calibrate' | grep 'grids'
once a have a list of all the directories with those files I want to iterate through them and run commands. I can do the loop, just can't create a list of dir to go through. please help!!!

dirs=(/top/*/*/grids /top/*/*/calibrate)
find "${dirs[*]}"

Suppose you know the possible values for $code1 and $code2. You can use range expansion.
find /top/{dira,dirb,dirc}/{dird,dire,dirf}/{grids,calibrate} ...

Code:
while read code
do 

dirs=(/top/$code/*.*.pock/grids /top/$code/*.*.pock/calibrate)

find "${dirs[*]}"
done < $1
will that recognize numbers where the * are?

In Bash:
Code:
find /top -type d -print0 | while read -rd '' DIR ; do
    [ -d "$DIR/grids/" ] || continue
    [ -d "$DIR/calibrate/" ] || continue

    # Directory "$DIR/" contains both "$DIR/grids/" and "$DIR/calibrate/".

done
If you only want to match only exactly two levels down, you can either use
Code:
find /top -mindepth 2 -maxdepth 2 -type d -print0 | while read -rd '' DIR ; do
    [ -d "$DIR/grids/" ] || continue
    [ -d "$DIR/calibrate/" ] || continue

    # Directory "$DIR/" contains both "$DIR/grids/" and "$DIR/calibrate/".

done
or an explicit loop,
Code:
for DIR in /top/*/*/ ; do
    [ -d "$DIR/grids/" ] || continue
    [ -d "$DIR/calibrate/" ] ||*continue

    # Directory "$DIR/" contains both "$DIR/grids/" and "$DIR/calibrate/".

done
In Bash, a * will match any name, except for names that begin with a dot. It will, for example, match both foo.bar and @Feghda_zooperdoPE94.453-324_Qwe file or directory names. It will not descend into a subdirectory, though; it will never match a slash (/) or anything containing a slash.
