- Michael sends us this tip, “I couldn’t help feeling sorry for you when you mentioned the “tree” command this week. You said that it beats navigating the directory hierarchy and typing “ls”, “cd ..” etc. Maybe you’ve not heard of the “find” command? Surely you have! But if you had, you wouldn’t be doing that! find lets you specify a shell pattern to match against file names at any level in the directory hierarchy.” (linux.die.net)
