  • Counts the files present in the different directories recursively. One only has to change maxdepth to have further insight in the directory hierarchy.

    find -maxdepth 3 -type d | while read -r dir; do printf "%s:\t" "$dir"; find "$dir" | wc -l; done

  • This assumes you have the package installed necessary for converting WMF files. On my Ubuntu box, this is libwmf-bin. I used this command, as libwmf is not on my wife's iMac, so I archived the directories containing the WMF files from OS X, ran them on my Ubuntu box, archived the resulting SVGs, and sent them back to her. Quick, simple and to the point. Searches directories recursively looking for extensions ignoring case. This is much more readable and clean than -exec for find. The while loop also gives further flexibility on complex logic. Also, although there is 'wmf2svg --auto', it expects lowercase extensions, and not uppercase. Because I want to ignore case, I need to use the -o option instead. Works in ZSH and BASH. Haven't tested in other shells.

    find . -type f -iname '*.wmf' | while read FILE; do FILENAME="${FILE%.*}"; wmf2svg -o ${FILENAME}.svg $FILE; done

  • This script first find all files which contains word xxxxx recursively. Then replace the word xxxxx to yyyyy of the files. Use case: - Web site domain change - Function name change of the program


    -1
    grep -r -l xxxxx . | xargs perl -i -pe "s/xxxxx/yyyyy/g"

  • The output format is given by the -printf parameter: %T@ = modify time in seconds since Jan. 1, 1970, 00:00 GMT, with fractional part. Mandatory, hidden in the end. %TY-%Tm-%Td %TH:%TM:%.2TS = modify time as YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS. Optional. %p = file path Refer to http://linux.die.net/man/1/find for more about -printf formatting. ------------------------ sort -nr = sort numerically and reverse (higher values - most recent timestamp - first) head -n 5 = get only 5 first lines (change 5 to whatever you want) cut -f2- -d" " = trim first field (timestamp, used only for sorting) ------------------------ Very useful for building scripts for detecting malicious files upload and malware injections.

    find . -type f -printf '%T@ %TY-%Tm-%Td %TH:%TM:%.2TS %p\n' | sort -nr | head -n 5 | cut -f2- -d" "

What Others Think

People- there's a search bar at the top called 'Grep the archive'. I think we've covered every last known scenario with find... 10 times. Something new perhaps?
