from a DOS command line if i wanted to find a file somewhere on my hard drvie i would type the following:
dir /s *.mp3
using the /s switch to search all subdirectories
the * wildcard for any files that end in .mp3
how can i do the same from the linux command line? this is driving me crazy!
thx in advance
If the file u want to search is an executable then u can use which command . for example type
it will give u where executable of traceroute is placed.
If the file is not executable then use slocate or locate command
Trust this helps.
If u have any further query, plz ask
