Red face How to recursively find files over a certain size


I made an account under freeshell.org and it has been very satisfactory so far. I recommend everyone getting an account under freeshell.org.

But anyways, how do I find files over, for example, 500 KB, in the entire ... ugh... my shell account?

That's ok...I've got Linux on my laptop and other machines. Got my own shells.

Read the man page on the find command "man find", and pay particular attention to the "-size" flag....
