When you want to find all of the files matching a certain filename pattern, a wildcard can be used with the find command. Here are some examples to get you started.
To find all files ending with .html:
find / -name \*.html -print
The character causes the shell to ignore the following character, in this case an asterisk. To find a file that starts with project:
find / -name project\* -print
Multiple wildcards can be used in the same find command. The following command finds all files with the word maybe in it:
find / -name \*maybe\* -print
The backslash \ character is important. It tells the shell not to treat the wildcard character as a wildcard when interpreting the command line arguments.
