The find command is used to locate files on a Unix
or Linux system. find will search any set of director-
ies you specify for files that match the supplied se-
arch criteria. You can search for files by name, owner,
group, type, permissions, date, and other criteria.
The search is recursive in that it will search all subd-
irectories too.
The syntax looks like this:
find where-to-look criteria what-to-do
explanation for -print switch follows…
-print True; print the full file name on the standard
output, followed by a newline.
