how to find files in current directory only (not recursively)
 
hi
how to find the files using find command in current directory only without searching recursively inside the directories.

I think setting -maxdepth 1 should do it, if I understand your question correctly.

thanks

it works but i dont understand the output when -maxdepth is set to zero

[bala@localhost ~]$ find -maxdepth 0
.


what does the . (current directory ) signify.i expect the output to be nothing.
