UNIX Support: Recursively Find


If you are like me and rarely use the UNIX find command, it is best to have a simple script to help find files without having to remember the unique syntax of the find command. So, if you are looking for a file that has a certain word in the filename, then you can use the script below. Here is the syntax to run this script.

$ refind.pl <WORD>

You can copy-n-paste the script here.
