Unix Tip #4384- March 13, 2014


SEARCH : Home : Help : Today's Tip

USE DU TO FIND FILES


Normally:

find . -name *.txt -print

is the command to find a file.
But you can locate find more
efficiently using du and grep

Use:

du -a |grep *.txt

This will locate all the files
with the extension .txt in the
current directory.
