Executive Summary

The Linux find command is simultaneously one of the most useful and confounding of all Linux commands. It is difficult because its syntax varies from the standard syntax of other Linux commands. It is powerful, however, because it allows the user to find files by filename, by file type, by user, and even by time stamp. With the find command, not only is one able to locate files with any combination of these attributes, but one can also perform actions on the files it finds. The purpose of this paper is to simplify the task of learning and using the find command by giving an overview of its purpose and potential.
