Hi,

Author's example for 'find' does show the versatility of the command line. I do agree the opportunity to expand by using 'grep' would have been valid and useful to users to understand the differences.

I suggest that you leave a comment at: http://mylinuxbook.com/20-interestin...d-line-tricks/
