Is there a simple way to search for files in a tree without 'manually' crawling around it?

4 posts in this topic

As the title says, I was wondering #1 if there is a simple way to search for files in a tree without 'manually' crawling around it?

I guess, I'm probably looking for a UDF that is search function that will list the matching files (Full path/filename) to an array.

And/or is there a simple way to manually crawl around the tree, and do a set of commands in every directory? I'm sure I could do this on my own -- but I have a feeling, I would make it a lot harder than it needs to be, so I wanted to ask, before I dig in and try to do this.

Exactly!! And I bet "recursive" is the missing search term* I need to narrow down the results and find what I want.

Thanks!! <_<

*(I knew there was a word for that, but oddly couldn't think of it - despite the fact I work on linux, and use the -r "recursive" switch on 'rm' and 'cp' all the time.... lol)
