Re: searching of file

hi mohit,

user find command.

e.g., if you want to find a file named xyz at the root ..

then

#find / -name xyz -print

do man find , for more details.

Do you want to search _for_ a file, or do you
want to search for something _in_ a file?

"man find" or "man grep", depending.
