How to find files under the current directory?


Assumed y directory structure looks as follow:

Code:
--root
  -- dir1
     -- dir1-1
  -- dir2
     -- dir2-1
        -- dir2-2
And under each sub dir there are some log files ended with .log.

Now I want to list all these log files. How to to that?

A rather non-complicated use of the `find` command will do precisely what you want. Something like:
Code:
find . -type f -name "*\.log"
Check `find` man page for loads of other options and things you can do with `find`.

Cheers!
