How can I recursively find all files in current and subfolders based on wildcard matching?
find . -name "foo*"
find needs a starting point, so the
. (dot) points to the current directory.
Piping find into grep is often more convenient; it gives you the full power of regular expressions for arbitrary wildcard matching.
For example, to find all files with case insensitive string “foo” in the filename:
~$ find . -print | grep -i foo
find will find all files that match a pattern:
find . -name "*foo"
However, if you want a picture:
tree -P "*foo"
Hope this helps!
