How can I find in only particular directories?
 
How can I find in only particular directories with the find command?

Depends ... one options would be
echo dir1 dir2 dir3|xargs -i find {} -name "file"

What are you after, exactly?


Cheers,

Thanks

I'm installing LFS and I use in find and diff to create package log manager.

but I don't need to check the /dev /proc /home and /root directories.

There is a way to only write the four directories since it's less?

Untested, but ....
Code:

find . \( -path '/dev' -o -path '/proc' -o -path '/home' -o -path '/root' \) -prune -o -print

Cheers,
Tink
