To search for files of a particular size

First of all, I'd like to find certain files with a particular pattern in their names. Then among those listed, I'd like to list only those with a minimum file size.

How can I get this done? Is there a single command with the usage of pipes, or do I have to carry out a sequence of command executions?

Hi Mufy!

This command:
find /home -name '*mpeg' -size +10000k
will find all mpeg files in your /home with a size bigger than 10000 kilobytes. For more options on size, see
man find
