search for a files in Unix environment I always use find command

To search for files with their names in certain directory you have to type find then the path then use -name parameters then type the name and it will search all the files that begin with that name

$ find / –name abc

you can use it to search for core files

$find / –name core

You can also search by file size

$find / –size 100m
