Find Things

How to find things under Linux.

Find files by filename

Case-insensitive example:

find . -type f -iname "*hello*"

Finds "Hello, hello, Thello, Thelloman, HELLO, hELLO, ..."

Case-sensitive example:

find . -type f -name "*Hello*"

Finds "Hello, THello, THelloman, ..."

Find files by content and filename

grep

ack

ack -i kmoretools

Install: sudo zypper install ack Website: http://beyondgrep.com/

ag

ack -i kmoretools

Install: sudo zypper install the_silver_searcher Website: https://github.com/ggreer/the_silver_searcher
