10.4: Use older Sherlock to search by filename
Authored by: kyngchaos on Jul 06, '05 04:39:01PM

you sure about that? The UNIX find command needs operators in an expression to find even a file name. the first argument (other than options) must be a folder to search in, it doesn't default to the current folder. And the name operators use wildcards, so you can't just type a part of the name. So it would be more like (to search for part of a name in the current folder):

find . -iname "**"

(-iname is for case insensitive search)

I stand slightly corrected. The problems of commenting from memory without being in front of OS X.
