find utility is the one of the primary ways of finding files and directories in Linux.
The general syntax is:
find [<flags>] <path> <search-expression>
A number of optional flags are available to fine-tune the search.
-name flag can be used for searching a file by name in a case-sensitive manner.
# By exact filename: find -name . config.js # By file extension: find -name . *.js # By filename pattern: find -name . config*
-name flag can be replaced by
-iname to search in a case-insensitive manner.
# By exact filename in case-insensitive manner: find -iname . readme*
