Finding files question...
Morning everyone. I have a question here that I have been meaning to post, but have not had the time.
Basically, here is my question:
It revolves around find and the rpm -qa command.
Lets start with rpm -qa.
If I wanted to find a set of RPM's, for instance let's use LDAP, what would be the appropriate syntax to use.
rpm -qa |grep ldap*
Or would you use a single quote or double quotes?
Can someone explain to me why I would use a single quote or double quote when searching for rpms or files?
In the example above, I was trying to find all files that start with LDAP and whatever extension after that.
I want to know how to narrow down my search for specific items, but at the same time, yielding more specific results.
Any input is much appreciated.
