simple search commands in linux
This seems like a terribly simple question, but I've searched the man pages and internet tutorials for ls, grep, and find and have ended up a little confused.
All I would like to do is be able to simple filesystem searches for filenames or part of a filename. I hate to equate things to windows, but in dos I would type:
c:\ dir /s foo*
to search the entire drive letter for anything beginning with "foo* (ex foo.exe, foobar.doc, fooztastic.jpg)
c:\ dir /s *.avi
to search the entire drive letter for avi files...
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
